"A judge has denied a Warner Bros. motion to dismiss 20th Century Fox’s lawsuit over Warners’ right to make a film based on the graphic novel "Watchmen."See, this is what happens when you make films against the wishes of a self-proclaimed "magus"...
Ruling is potentially a huge victory for Fox, which could wind up as a profit participant in the film, and could cost Warners millions considering the film’s box office prospects. However, Fox’s legal team says it isn’t looking for monetary compensation and instead wants to prevent the big-budget film from being released altogether."
Still, if this lawsuit really does hold up or "kill" the movie, that's gonna piss a lot of fans off.
Could it really happen?
"Surprisingly, Fox said it would rather see the film killed instead of collecting a percentage of the box office."
