In light of the massive
internet buzz this past week on account of Zack Snyder setting out his plans for his WATCHMEN movie, I thought it was about time that I gave this thread a well needed shot in the arm.
C'mon, we are after all talkin' about potentially one of the biggest comic book movies EVER
; certainly the most eagerly anticipated!
For those who missed it (shame on you!), catch what’s probably the best coverage of what Mr Snyder had to say for himself over at IESB.net:
...where you'll see that he's now seriously turning his attention to his casting choices. Legions of fans worldwide wait with baited breath for the official announcements, but if YOU want to do your bit, then NOW
really is the time to add your voice.
I still maintain that actor Doug Hutchison
best choice to portray what will be the crucial, pivotal role of Kovacs... Rorschach
himself. Many, many
others feel the same way and have already shown their support by contributing to numerous fan boards across teh interweb... but there really can't be such a thing as too much support and I urge you to show yours!
I can assure you that Doug still very much wants this part, and it remains my firm belief that he will do the role proud by delivering a truly powerhouse performance of the type that we would all want to see for Rorschach on screen; simply put, nothing less will do, period.
What you're seeing at this board is part of a concerted campaign to snag Doug this part by bringing him to the attention of the movie makers along with a swell of online support behind him, so he gets the opportunity to ply his craft at an audition and have a shot at the title. His people in sunny LA are taking care of the studio contacts and casting director side of the operation at the heart of Hollywoodland; I'm covering the WWW from my lil' overworked PC!
Feel the same way? Wanna be part of something where the fans might at long last get a say? Hit 'Reply' and go for it...
DOUG HUTCHISON IS RORSCHACH.
People must be told.
Hurm. My continued sincere thanks for your time and support.
