Moore Films

SciFi Wire has news about two Alan Moore projects making their way to film:

The Wachowski Brothers are set to produce V for Vendetta, with James McTeigue (first assistant on the Matrix films) most likely to direct.

There's also a rumor that Bourne Supremacy director Paul Greengrass is taking of the reins of hte on-again-off-again Watchmen movie.

Of course, if either or both of these get made, the chance that they'll resemble Moore's comics is rather slim (exhibits 1 & 2: From Hell and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen). It'll be interesting to see how people react to a story where the good guy is essentially a terrorist...
