Fox likes Warner Brothers afterall?

This whole todo about the release of Watchmen in regards to Fox's recent "problems" with Warner Brothers impending release of the film adaptation of the epic graphic novel. But we really haven't gotten the story from Fox's side of the battle. The fans are in quite the understandable uproar regarding the possible prevention of the film's release. What does Fox say? Hollywood Insider has some insight: "Of course we are concerned about the fans; however, any disappointment from the core fans should not be directed toward Fox. What we are doing is seeking to enforce our distribution rights to Watchmen. Legal copyright ownership should not just be swept under the rug and ignored.” Ok. So Fox are concerned about the fans. But what about the timing? Fox started their lawsuit in February of this year, right as the film was being wrapped up and in post-production. They knew that the film was in the process of being made for years, yet they decided to wait until now to bring up the lawsuit. How does Warner Brothers feel? "We respectfully disagree with Fox's position and do not believe they have any rights in and to this project. It is particularly noteworthy that nothing on the face of the complaint or the documents supplied to the Court establishes that [Watchmen producer Larry] Gordon, the claimed source of Warner Brothers' interest in Watchmen, ever acquired any rights in Watchmen." So here we are, moving ever closer to the likelihood that Warner Brothers paying a hefty sum to Fox to allow the film to be released. All I know is that this film needs to be released in March, otherwise you're going to have quite the angry mob of Watchmen fans. Although I'm sure Alan Moore would be happy, considering he has been against a feature film adaptation from the start. Stay tuned for more kids. Fox has no problem with Warner Brothers
