Watchmen to be a 4 1/2 hour, R-Rated awesome-fest

Slashfilm has posted this excellent story in which they document the latest news in the upcoming Watchmen film from director Zack Snyder. The news that it turned out to be this 4-hour long superhero epic shouldn't be a surprise, but now we'll have to see what the studio will do with it. The fact that they will be releasing The Black Freighter as an animated feature on DVD around the same time the film drops in theaters is a positive note but any sane studio would balk at releasing such a high risk film with no major stars, no mainstream bankability and risk a high priced box office bomb. I certainly hope that both the studio and the fans put faith in the project and release the film and support it. I'm not a hardcore fan of the graphic novel, but to see how passionate the filmmaker is to get the story on the big screen inspires me and we all need to support that kind of drive. Check out the article for all types of new info. (That picture up there comes from Aintitcoolnews)
