A big part of the excitement around the Watchmen movie comes from Zack Snyder's incredible shot-by-shot attention to detail. And he's already proven that he shines in a more CG-heavy film, like 300. So the news that Snyder is on board to direct one of the segments in the new Heavy Metal animated film is pretty exciting. Also directing segments: Gore Verbinski and David Fincher. There's no studio on board yet, but with Snyder involved, it's looking more like a sure thing. [Heavy Metal via Cinemablend]
