Hayter on "Watchmen"

“Watchmen” screenwriter David Hayter was interviewed by IGN FilmForce and gave his thoughts about the project possibly being put into the hands of another writer. “As for the script going up as an open writing assignment, I have not heard that definitively, but it wouldn’t particularly surprise me,” Hayter advised IGN. “I would, of course, be disappointed, and do not personally feel that this is a necessary step, as the screenplay is pretty perfect as it is.

However, the same concerns raised at other studios have been raised at the WB (i.e., too complex, too dark, too many characters) and after five years of work on this project, I am no longer willing to continue messing with material that I have meticulously developed for the past half a decade just to please another timid studio. I believe that Watchmen must be embraced wholly for what it is – a complex, hyper-intelligent epic – rather than turned into something simpler for studio comfort. In the latter case, it should not be made at all.” ‘Nuff said.
