Watchmen Episode I: The Minutemenace
The Pitch: Yep - it's prequel time, as the studio decides to power up the flux capacitor and take a longer look at the (mis)adventures of the original crime-catching crew.
A significant re-write means the story no longer actually fits into Watchmen continuity, but no-one involved with the production seems to mind.
The Director: The cyborg-mounted head of George Lucas is at the helm, calling the shots via a remote link to his Skywalker Moon Base.
In the plot, we meet Silhouette (a clone of Paris Hilton - again) and Hooded Justice, who meet, fall in love and ultimately plan to rule the world. Or something… George doesn’t really care. Just check out the amazing, 20-dimension effects and shit!
