WATCHMEN Sequel: Snyder Says No, Actors On Contract
Get your fill of Zack Snyder‘s interpretation of the Watchmen world today because there’s no amount of money that could bring him back for a sequel, says the director.
“There’s no way I would be involved in a sequel or prequel.
“Will they make one? I have no idea how you would. The work is the work. This movie is about ideas. Anything else you would do, if you did a sequel to it, misses the point entirely of what Watchmen is. To continue is to either rehash the same idea again or you’re going to try to fix the characters, which goes against everything the book stands for, or you could pick up new characters. To me, philosophically, it just doesn’t make sense.”
Usually people don’t discuss sequels until the first weekend’s box office is settled, but I think it’s safe to say “Watchmen” will bring in the megabucks, a typical green light for a follow-on. So should they make a sequel? No way. Will they try? I don’t doubt it and from what Dr. Manhattan actor Billy Crudup reveals it sounds like it is at least a possibility.
“Contractually, we are obligated. I will do it. I just don’t know what it is we would do.”
Contractually we’re not obligated to care if they make a sequel either.
