There was a moment in time when it seemed like Brazil director Terry Gilliam would bring Alan Moore's seminal graphic novel Watchmen to the silver screen. But it didn't work out.
Howerver, producer Joel Silver has revealed how Gilliam's adaptation would have ended. He told Coming Soon:
Silver: ... What Terry had done, and it was a Sam Hamm script—who had written a script that everybody loved for the first "Batman"—and then he brought in a guy who'd worked for him to do work on it [Charles McKeown, co-writer of "Brazil"]. What he did was he told the story as-is, but instead of the whole notion of the intergalactic thing which was too hard and too silly, what he did was he maintained that the existence of Doctor Manhattan had changed the whole balance of the world economy, the world political structure. He felt that THAT character really altered the way reality had been. He had the Ozymandias character convince, essentially, the Doctor Manhattan character to go back and stop himself from being created, so there never would be a Doctor Manhattan character. He was the only character with real supernatural powers, he went back and prevented himself from being turned into Doctor Manhattan, and in the vortex that was created after that occurred these characters from "Watchmen" only became characters in a comic book.
CS: That's fascinating. Very META.
Silver: Oh yeah. So the three characters, I think it was Rorschach and Nite Owl and Silk Spectre, they're all of the sudden in Times Square and there's a kid reading a comic book. They become like the people in Times Square dressing up like characters as opposed to really BEING those characters. There's a kid reading the comic book and he's like, "Hey, you're just like in my comic book." It was very smart, it was very articulate, and it really gave a very satisfying resolution to the story, but it just didn't happen. Lost to time.
What! So they become some kinda cosplayers of themselves? It's um.. interesting? We have no idea how to feel about this.
Crime and Mystery has always had us glued to our seats when it comes to TV. Human brain is wired such that, it is attracted to curiosity and mystery. It gets more enticing, when the show strikes the right balance in personal and professional lives of the protagonist. It gets too hard to hate them for all their cruelties when it comes to them having their personal lives just like a common man. Romanticizing the “villain” makes it more worth watching. Ironically, making it hard to decide whose side the show’s at. Read more
