Caught up with the wonderful Jeffrey Dean Morgan – extremely nice guy – this morning, to talk about the forthcoming “Watchmen”. The interview will be up in a couple of weeks, but thought this was an interesting bit to let prematurely pop.Â According to the actor – and I agree wholeheartedly with his opinion – Warner Bros have sequel options on the cast, including himself, but he’s not excited at the prospect of doing another. As far as he’s concerned, all Minutemen stop here.
“We are all signed for sequels, but, ya know, thereâ€™d be no Rorschach, thereâ€™d be no Comedian – – itâ€™d be sorta useless. Itâ€™d have to be a prequel. But Iâ€™d say unless Alan Moore says heâ€™s gonna write something, weâ€™ll never see Watchmen 2.
“There may be someone sitting in a room somewhere at Warner Bros waiting to see if this does OK, and ready to pitch another â€“ but I doubt Zach would do another, and without him, I wouldnâ€™t go back, and I canâ€™t imagine any of the other actors would want to either.
“Itâ€™s like the 300 sequel theyâ€™re talking about â€“ how do you do that? I guess they can do a prequel â€“ but it makes no sense. Iâ€™d love to be a fly-on-the-wall in the meeting in which someone brings up a Watchmen sequel â€“ especially if it happens with Zach around, because he wonâ€™t want any part of it. I think this is it; what you see, is what you get. It was always a oner for me.”
”Watchmen” director Snyder has mentioned heâ€™d like to do a film adaptation of Frank Millerâ€™s Batman novel, â€˜â€™The Dark Knight Returnsâ€™â€™ down the line. And guess who would like to be asked to play Bats?
”Iâ€™ve heard Zach mention heâ€™d like to do it in the media a few times recently. Iâ€™d love to see myself in that role”,Â Morgan, who also teased he’s about to sign for another big WB project, laughs. ”I don’t think [Warner] will do it at the moment, not with what The Dark Knight is doing. But the studio loves Zach, and if Watchmen does as well as we hope it does, you never know, he might get a crack at this thing.”
