Who’s Watching the Watchmen Film?

Fans fear that the much-awaited adaptation will get lost in the shuffle at Paramount Pictures. Here's an update of where things stand with The Watchmen movie.
With leadership changes at Paramount Studios, fans of Alan Moore and David Gibbons' Watchmen maxi-series are beginning to worry that the much-promised feature film adaptation won't get made.

Ain't It Cool News' Harry Knowles has been following the film’s development closely since it was first rumored in the early 1990s (back when Monty Python Terry Gilliam was going to write and direct) and has an update on the film's progress.

Here's an excerpt: "WATCHMEN is not, despite all the death knells that have been sounded in the press and online, dead. They're in a difficult position right now with [director Paul] Greengrass, because when he signed on, the film was described to him as a greenlight, a go picture. Now, because of circumstance, he finds himself in the position of having to pitch the studio the movie all over again."
