DOUG HUTCHISON IS RORSCHACH!
Fresh word from the Doug camp in Hollywoodland today, Nov. 27, is that Our Man remains committed to snagging the Rorschach role, and is currently working his craft in order to develop a wholly convincing realisation of the character from the page to real life, in readiness for those all important casting sessions and the official announcement of auditions.
After continued hunting, searching, networking, and ‘doing their thing’ by Doug’s people, it’s apparent that the studio has yet to give the final, ultimate seal of approval to the script recently turned in by Snyder & Co. but that, all being well, WATCHMEN should be heading before the cameras late spring/summer 2007.
It’s expected that the casting call will go out come the New Year in preparation for this schedule. I’m reliably informed that the Doug Is Rorschach campaign has already raised some eyebrows in certain quarters, and that if a sustained level of positive feedback here at the boards akin to that already seen can be generated at the right time, then the casting department can be expected to “…hunt him down to audition and read for the role.”
Watch(men) this space for further updates as I get ‘em, and expect some additional input come the advent of MMVII, including insights into Making Rorschach A Reality from The H Man hisself!
In the meantime, sincere continued thanks for your interest and support, both past, present, and future (or simultaneous, in the case of Dr. Manhattan!)
HURM. NEVER COMPROMISE.
