WonderCon: Zack Snyder Talks "Watchmen"
"We have the script and we're trying to get the schedule [and budget] together. I think the studio understands this movie is rated R," said Snyder. As for the cast, Snyder confirmed he has spoken at length with Tom Cruise about a part in the movie, but said Cruise's involvement is no longer likely. Snyder said his discussions with Cruise were mostly "theoretical," but Snyder pictured him playing the part of Ozymandias. Snyder said he plans to start shooting "Watchmen" at the end of the summer.
