HBO's Watchmen Remix Pilot Gets First Cast Members

Your guess is as good as ours as to who everyone is playing.

Earlier this week, Watchmen adapter Damon Lindelof took to Instagram to share a letter to fans of the source material. 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. Remix being the key word.

The adaptation has cast a number of lead roles, leaving us no closer to figuring out which characters are actually going to appear in the show. Those cast in the pilot include Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Adelaide Clemens, and Andrew Howard. These new and old characters will be set in the Watchmen universe but in a modern day setting.

Lindelof's Watchmen is still in the preparatory phase, with Nicole Kassell hired to direct the pilot. It will air on HBO.
