Illusion Arts Digital, a special effects house based out of California, has announced on their website that they have joined the production team for Watchmen.

Based on the work Illusion Arts has done on films like The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe and Van Helsing it seems likely that they will be providing visual backgrounds for Watchmen. Zack Snyder previously used green-screened backgrounds extensively for 300.
