Movieweb.com hatte die Gelegenheit mit Zack Snyder über seinen neusten Film Watchmen zu sprechen. Und dieser hatte auch einige interessante Fakten zu berichten.

Zu erst sprach man über die Transformation von Dr. Manhatten: “It was a weird process. We made a wedge. That’s a visual effects term. It was done in quick time. We would scroll the length up and down. And we wrapped it around a frame. Of course we were worried about the rating. Yeah. We are still nervous about it. It wasn’t so much about taking any inches off. It was more about how many times you get to see him. We have an R rating right now. So they’ve seen him. Maybe, partly because he is CG, they thought it was okay. It was a really practical decision to make it that length. Then we put him in the thong, which is CG. We basically took his outfit from the book. But, as in the book, we took it off him. Because he just lets it go. He certainly lets it all hang out.

Bezüglich eines möglichen Watchmen Sequels/Prequels (wir berichteten), hatte Snyder ein klares Statement. Zwar wäre es interessant, er ist aber der Meinung, dass es weder Prequel noch Sequel geben kann, und er bei einer Fortsetzung nicht mitmachen werde. “I don’t know that. That would be interesting. But there can’t be a sequel. There can’t be a prequel. Not with me involved. They might be able to find someone that would do it, but it wouldn’t be me. That’s crazy talk.”

Über die aktuellen rechtlichen Streitereien zwischen Fox und Warner hat Snyder allerdings wenig zu sagen. Er ist nur daran interessiert den Film zu machen, der Rest interessiert ihn nicht. Er meinte, dass er kein Anwalt ist und somit auch nichts zu diesem Thema sagen kann. “We are just working on the movie. I’m not a lawyer, so it is hard for me to give a comment about that. And I probably shouldn’t. We have just been forging ahead. They would have come and stopped us if they wanted to. But they haven’t yet. We are having fun. And we are just making a movie.”

Und auch über das Watchmen Videospiel hatte er etwas zu sagen: Er meinte, dass das Projekt nichts mit seinem neuen Deal mit EA zu tun habe. Er glaubt dass das Spiel toll wird, und er war daran so gut beteiligt wie es nur möglich war. ”It’s not related. We have a (Watchmen) game now that I think is awesome. It was really about those first hits and starts, where we first started talking about making a Watchmen game. For me, it became about embracing the concept, and allowing that to flow. The work was to create a subversive concept that complimented the movie and the graphic novel. I think we came around to that. That was exciting. And the EA think was the afterbirth of that. I am involved with the Watchmen game as much as I can be. We certainly have looked at everything. We would look at it and say, ‘It’s great, but this could be better.’ But it’s not like its mine. We have had a lot of contact with them. Its cool.”

Auch über die DVD Version hatte er etwas zu sagen. Demnach hofft er darauf, dass er den Watchmen Film mit dem animierten Black Freighter Film (der zum Filmstart auf DVD erscheinen wird) zusammenfügen kann, damit man ein ganzes Erlebnis hat, wie es im Comic war. “What we are hoping for is a Watchmen movie that has the Black Freighter in it. We’ve been working really hard on (the Black Freighter), and Warner Premier has done a really great job of putting that together for us. So hopefully we will be able to incorporate that back into the film at some point.”

Und schlussendlich verriet Zack Snyder noch die vorläufige Laufzeit: 2 Stunden 43 Minuten. Aber es wäre durchaus möglich, dass der Film noch etwas kürzer gemacht wird.

Movieweb.com hatte auch schon die Gelegenheit einige Szenen aus dem Film zu sehen, und hier ist das finale Statement: From what we were allowed to watch, there is no doubt in my mind that Watchmen will be considered one of the all time greatest superhero flicks ever brought to the silver screen. It is shaping up to be something quite special, lawsuit be damned. And now, all of a sudden, March 6th, 2009, just can’t get here soon enough. Den vollständigen Text gibt es hier!
