Patrick Wilson discussed his upcoming film Watchmen and role he plays in the motion picture, Nite Owl II. Wilson gives insight into his character and remarks on the amazing level of detail in the film.
Adapted by Zack Snyder as the follow-up to the smash CGI-enhanced Persian War epic 300, the film features Wilson as Night Owl, described as "a rich kid interested in birds." Watchmen will "be set in an alternate 1985 with plenty of Cold War overtones."
It will also feature Matthew Goode as clever vigilante Ozymandias, Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the Comedian, Jackie Earle Haley as Rorschach and Malin Akerman as Silk Spectre and Billy Crudup as Dr. Manhattan.
Larry Gordon, Lloyd Levin and Deborah Snyder will produce.
