Zack Snyder has updated the Official Watchmen Movie Site with another blog entry, this time showing off their "war room", where the details of the upcoming Watchmen film are being planned off.
The director reveals the immense size of the room, and shows how the walls are literally covered with visual reference materials for the film. Snyder says:
Surrounding the many seats and long tables in the middle of the room, all the walls are covered and sectioned off into individual scenes - all the concept art, visual reference and any other related materials are grouped together for display. One of the things I love about the graphic novel is the incredible attention to detail. Here in the war room, we have created a place where all the departments can combine and display applicable reference, rendering a similar level of detail. From set concepts, to location photos, concepts for props, costumes, vehicles and even product logos, the surrounding walls incorporate it all. These walls are very useful in helping us keep track of so many different elements.
Snyder also promises that later in the month of November, he'll post up pictures showing some of the details of what is on the walls.
Watchmen is being directed by Zack Snyder and stars Patrick Wilson, Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman, Matthew Goode, Stephen McHattie and Carla Guigno. The film is scheduled for a 2009 release.
