People are still throwing fits over Damon Lindelof's adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen so Lindelof took to Instagram in hopes of alleviating any fears by talking about his history with the comic. In the letter he touches on his father's love of Watchmen, his desire to disrupt, and the inevitable backlash he knows he will receive when he remixes Watchmen for the modern day.
But luckily it won't be a direct adaptation of the comic. Lindelof's Watchmen is still in the preparatory phase, with Nicole Kassell hired to direct the pilot. It will air on HBO.
