JoBlo reports (via the Hollywood Reporter) that Darren Aronofsky has signed on to direct & produce the adaptation of Watchmen. David Hayter was supposed to write & direct, but opted to step aside and focus on just the script instead.

This rocks.

I'll believe it when I see it. Aronofsky's been tied to a lot of projects that haven't gotten off the ground in the last few years. He was originally supposed to be doing the new Batman movie, and his movie starring Brad Pitt apparently fell apart halfway through shooting.

Er. I dunno how I feel about this. Watchmen, in many comic fans' eyes, represents the best there is to offer when it comes to comics. If this movie is botched, it's going to upset a LOT of people.

I'll just cross my fingers and really hope they don't f-this up. I have to admit I don't know a damn thing about Darren Aronofsky (if he is directing).

Darren, as I believe the kids say, is the bomb diggity y0. Go rent Pi or Requiem for a Dream to understand and get mindfucked.

Isn't Darren Aronofsky supposed to be doing the Fountain starring Hugh Jackman this year? I suppose he will do Watchmen after that?
