Watchmen: Jeremy Irons Joins Cast For Damon Lindelof’s HBO Pilot


Deadline is exclusively reporting that Jeremy Irons is the latest name to join the cast of Damon Lindelof‘s HBO pilot Watchmen.

 

Alan Moore’s beloved comic book series is set in a universe in which costumed heroes in the mid-20th Century have altered the course of history, such as leading the US to victory in Vietnam and a Nixon presidency that stretched into the mid-1980’s, we follow a group of crimefighters investigating the murder of one of their own. In the process, Doctor Manhattan, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre and Rorschach, uncover a conspiracy with enormous implications.

 

It’s previously been stated that Damon Lindelof’s television project on the material will not be a straight adaptation of the twelve issues of the comic, but an original story that remixes them. Jeremy Irons (whose recent credits include Justice League and Red Sparrow) is allegedly playing an ageing and imperious Lord of a British manor, according to the report.

 

Damon Lindelof has penned the script for the pilot and will executive produce alongside Tom Spezialy and Nicole Kassell.

 

Jeremy Irons joins a cast that includes Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens and Andrew Howard.
