<i>Watchmen</i> Writer Alan Moore Working on a Film Project

Perhaps from frustration over the cinematic adaptations of his comic work with Watchmen and V for Vendetta, Alan Moore is planning a film project that is sure to feature the writer’s own noir and occult sensibilities. Empire reports that the Moore has written two short films for a series titled “Show Pieces”. Act of Faith, the title of one of Moore’s short films, has already been filmed in London starring Torchwood’s Siobhan Hewlett. The second film, titled Jimmy’s End, is planned to shoot in Moore’s hometown of Northhampton, U.K. Photographer Mitch Jenkins is directing both films.

Moore is best known for his iconic work in comics, including Watchmen, V for Vendetta and Swamp Thing. This will be Moore’s first filmed foray, excluding a failed screenplay called Fashion Beast, which is now getting the comic treatment.

After the premiere in New York this October, the two films will stream online through The Creator’s Project.
