Who’s Watching the Watchmen? We’re Gonna!

It looks as though the Watchmen drama surrounding Fox and Warner is finally coming to an end, with a final statement about the settlement to be released tomorrow (Friday).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the settlement is said “to involve a sizable cash payment to Fox and a percentage of the film’s box office.” Fox will also get a cut of Watchmen‘s gross intake, including from any sequels or spinoffs, among other fees like the film’s development and legal compensation (found on the NY Times Carpetbagger blog).

Oh it’s ON, March 6. If anyone’s looking for me that day, I’ll be in my Silk Spectre outfit clutching a large tub of popcorn and a Diet Coke, poised gracefully outside the theater until it begins. Who’s with me??

ALSO:

I stumbled upon this very cool (and very brief) video of Alan Moore reading an excerpt from Watchmen as Rorschach. Pretty frikkin’ sweet.
