Jude Law cast in Watchmen movie

Dave has news that Jude Law has been cast as Ozymandias in the upcoming Watchmen film. He'll probably do a good job. But Keanu Reeves as Dr. Manhatten? Is that confirmed? Woah. etc.


That film will almost certainly be junk.. it's one comic book that should never make the transition to film, in my humblest opinion.

There are too many things that will fail to translate: i.e.: The pirate comic substory, Rorschach's diary, Dr. Manhattan's Mars soliloquy, etc. But, V for Vendetta failed to convey the comic books' original intention but it was still a pretty good movie.

Yeah, maybe it will be different but still good.
