Watchmen is highly anticipated adaptation of Alan Moore, Dave Gibbons and John Higgins’s mid-80s graphic novel.
Details of the television series have been kept pretty quiet, but we do know that the series is set to be in an alternate Earth history, where “superheroes are treated as outlaws.”
This isn’t the first project Reznor and Ross have worked together on, the duo having won an Oscar for The Social Network’s soundtrack back in 2010.

Watchmen will star Jeremy Irons, Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Adelaide Clemens.
The director recently penned a heartfelt letter to fans on his vision for the series, sharing that the HBO series won’t be a sequel to the film, saying:
“We are not making a ‘sequel’ either,” Lindelof writes. “This story will be set in the world its creators painstakingly built… But in the tradition of the work that inspired it, this new story must be original.”

Damon Lindelof’s HBO pilot is set to debut in 2019.
