hyphen interviews watchmen screenwriter alex tse

Hyphen just posted a pretty good interview screenwriter Alex Tse, who took on Alan Moore's dark, epic graphic novel about costumed heroes and turned it into the script for Zack Snyder's dark, epic Hollywood movie about costumed heroes: Watchmen's watcher, Alex Tse.

As expected, Watchmen came in number one at the box office last weekend, taking in about $55 million. Too bad Alex doesn't really get to see any of that cash. But I think he's doing all right.

He talks a bit about his experiences in the industry, as well as dealing with diversity in his scripts, particularly in writing the project that got him his big break, Sucker Free City, which I've said many times here how much I enjoyed. Next up: an adaptation of Ray Bradbury's classic sci-fi tale, The Illustrated Man.
