Tales of the Black Freighter

With Watchmen mania continuing to grow, I was curious if one aspect of it was going to make it to the big screen.  Namely, the infamous "Tales of the Black Freighter" comic book within a comic book.  While it appears that it will not, it will at least be making it to the small screen!

Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter & Under the Hood will be released on March 24th. It will not only include an animated version of "Tales of the Black Freighter", but a live action version of Nite Owls tell all biography, "Under the Hood".

But just don't listen to me blab about it. Check out the trailer yourself!

From trivia:
Zack Snyder wanted to cast his 300 (2006) star Gerard Butler in this film and even promised him a role. When all the roles were cast and Butler didn't have one, Snyder cast him in Tales of the Black Freighter (2009) (V), which is based on the comic-within-a-comic from the Watchmen graphic novel and will be released on DVD around the time Watchmen will be released in theaters.
