This page, however, is not about that adaptation. ''This'' page is about the 1989 [[UnfortunateNames Sam Hamm]] rough draft script, which was never produced, but is just so balls-to-the-wall SoBadItsGood, CrazyAwesome that it gets its very own page here at TV Tropes.

Confusingly, Creator/AlanMoore actually ''liked'' this script, which either makes him the greatest troll of all time or suggests that he thought it would just prove the inherent unfilmability of his work. Had it been produced, it likely would have starred Creator/RobinWilliams as Rorschach, Creator/KevinCostner as Adrian Veidt (he's never called Ozymandias in this script), JamieLeeCurtis as Silk Spectre, and Gary Busey as the Comedian.

* DeathByAdaptation:[[spoiler:Adrian Veidt, who is notably killed pretty much just for being an asshole. Sure, he still goes about giving people cancer to add credence to his discreditation of Dr. Manhattan a la the original, but that's the extent of his villainy here. His climactic plan? No mass murder, just sniping Jon Osterman through a hole in spacetime before he can become Dr. Manhattan, thus saving the world (it's complicated). Manhattan kills him with a blast of energy for this, and then almost immediately decides the spirit of what Adrian intended was right and saves his alternate/past self from Manhattanization.]]
