Updated October 2, 2015 at 9:53 a.m. EST: HBO has now confirmed it's had "preliminary discussions" about a Watchmen television series, in a statement to Deadline.
"Preliminary discussions regarding Watchmen have occurred, but we have no additional information and no deals are in place," said an unnamed HBO spokesperson.
Deadline elaborated on the story, citing unnamed sources in saying that these "preliminary discussions" took place several months ago but has since concluded.
Original Story: Collider is reporting that Watchmen director Zack Snyder has been meeting with HBO about adapting the Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons series in some form to a television series, but that no project has been greelit yet.
Collider reports they have no details about what sort of project HBO and Snyder have met about - a prequel, a sequel, a reimaging of the main series - it's all speculation at this stage.
HBO reportedly has a notoriously difficult development process for television series, so even if the meetings have occured as reported it does not mean a project will be developed.
