Exclusive: Zack Snyder talks Future Projects and WATCHMEN

     February 24, 2009

Written by Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub

Last Friday I got to speak with “Watchmen” director Zack Snyder. Since I’d spoken with him a number of times about “Watchmen” and asked tons of questions on the making of the movie, I decided to focus my one on one interview on some of the other projects he has in development.

Before I walked into the interview, I looked at Zack’s IMDB profile and realized he was attached to seven things that were in various stages of development. In case you’re wondering, the seven movies are “Army of the Dead”, “The Last Photograph”, “Heavy Metal”, “The Illustrated Man”, “300 prequel/sequel”, and “Guardians of GaHoole”.

Before the interview began, I asked Zack if he would mind talking about these projects and he said he was game for anything and couldn’t have been nicer. Seriously, Zack is one of those directors that’s not only great at his craft, but a super-cool individual. Trust me, this is not always the case with filmmakers.

So if you’re like me and a big fan of Zack Snyder, you will love this interview as he gives updates on everything he’s attached to.

And for fans of “Watchmen”, in part two of the interview we talk about the possibility of releasing the director’s cut in digital IMAX. I also asked him if he would ever release a version of “Watchmen” that would feature the Under the Hood stuff mixed into the actual movie.

Again, a big thank you to Zack Snyder for giving me so much of his time and being so cool, and to everyone at WB who made this interview happen.
