Carla Gugino Gets Sexy For Silk Spectre In ‘Watchmen’

carla gugino(via MTV) When I recently visited the set of one of 2009’s most anticipated movies, “Watchmen,” I saw many amazing things that I unfortunately still can’t talk about. One of the people who wasn’t there, however, was the stunningly sexy Carla Gugino — so when I caught up with her on the red carpet at Sunday’s SAG Awards, we were naturally both excited to engage in some red-hot, non-embargoed Sally Jupiter action.

“It was really one of the craziest, most fun roles I’ve ever gotten to play,” marveled the “Sin City” star, cast as the burlesque dancer who proves to be the most PR-savvy of the complex superheroes. “I start at 25 years old in the 1940s, and I age to 67 years old with full prosthetics in the 1980s. [Sally] is a larger-than-life character. She’s a costumed crime fighter, but her idea of a costume is very Bettie Page-meets-[Alberto] Vargas.”

As those who’ve read Alan Moore’s beloved 1986 comic know, Gugino’s character dubs herself “The Silk Spectre” and becomes a de facto matriarch among the alternate-reality antiheroes. Years later, she’d pass the torch to daughter Laurie (”The Heartbreak Kid” star Malin Akerman) and retire — but not until after she might have been raped by another so-called “hero.”

“The rape scene is pretty crazy that Jeffrey Dean Morgan and I have,” Gugino insisted. “Not that I would say that’s the one I really want you guys to see. … The title sequence of this movie is going to be extraordinary. We spent many weeks over the time of the shoot shooting it. That’s going to be a very, very special thing that wasn’t scripted, that will be really empowering.” (...continue)


Who Scores The Watchmen?

The music of the Watchmen is looking good. An announcement this week on who will compose the films music.

"Tyler Bates, a composer best known for his collaborations with Zack Snyder and Rob Zombie, has been chosen to provide the score for the upcoming adaptation of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons's Watchmen. Comingsoon reports that Snyder has recruited the man who scored 300, saying about that earlier project "It moves the film into mythology cauterizing the images as you view them, making them something they could never be alone." Bates has also written the music for Dawn of the Dead (2004), Halloween (2007), The Devil's Rejects, and Zombie's Werewolf Women of the SS trailer from Grindhouse." (source)


Watchmen Storyboards

New updates for the Watchmen's director Zack Snyder himself. This week Zack revealed some of the storyboards for the film adaptation of the Watchmen graphic novel. Storyboards are crucial for the filmmakers to visualize the shots they set up. Zack talks in detail about the vital part the storyboard process plays.


Alan Moore Doesn’t Care About The Watchmen

Alan Moore’s feelings about his comic books being turned into movies have never been much of a secret. On one hand, you can’t blame him – the adaptation of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was pretty horrid. But the news surrounding the writer’s attempt to have his name removed even from the good adaptations, like V For Vendetta, is the stuff of legends. With Moore’s most popular and groundbreaking creation, Watchmen currently filming, has the comic book legend changed his mind?

In a word: No. Not a bit.

In fact, Moore recently confirmed with Wizard Magazine that the studio has already sent over the paperwork Moore has to sign to have his name removed from Watchmen and the money he’s entitled to sent to artist Dave Gibbons – a similar agreement to what Moore had for Constantine. Moore told Wizard, ”I got a piece of paper—they must’ve learned something from the V for Vendetta debacle. I got a piece of paper a couple of months ago saying, “I, the undersigned, hereby give you permission to take my name off of the film and to send my money to Dave Gibbons.” So I sent that back to them all signed and sealed, which means that now I don’t have to rant and spew about the film.” (...more)
