Zack Snyder, who is currently hard at work on Watchmen, also occasionally posts to MTV. In his latest column, he revealed interesting news about where the adaptation of the award-winning comic series is currently at:

At the moment, I'm in the final weeks of shooting Watchmen, in Vancouver, British Columbia. Since Watchmen is a dissection of the superhero genre and forces it to take a long, hard look into the pop-culture mirror, it only makes sense that it's where my head is at these days.

Watchmen, based on the award winning graphic novel by Alan Moore, is set in an alternate 1985 America where costumed heroes are a part of the world's history, and the "Doomsday Clock", which measures the tension between the USA and the U.S.S.R. is constantly at five minutes to midnight. Rorschach, a vigilante who refused to retire when his teammates did, is drawn out by the murder of one of his colleagues, and pulled into a world-wide conspiracy with terrifying implications for the future of mankind.

Watchmen stars Patrick Wilson, Billy Crudup, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Jackie Earle Haley, Malin Akerman, Matthew Goode, Stephen McHattie, Carla Gugino and Matt Frewer. Watchmen opens across America on March 6th, 2009.
