Watchmen's Jeffrey Dean Morgan starring in The Losers

Watchmen star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is in negotiations to star in the comic-book-based The Losers for Warner Brothers, with Sylvain White directing, Variety reported.

The film adapts the DC-Vertigo comic book, about a band of black-ops commandos who are set up to be killed by their own government. They barely survive and set out to get even.

The James Vanderbilt-scripted project is being financed by Dark Castle Entertainment, with Dark Castle's Joel Silver, Weed Road's Akiva Goldsman and Kerry Foster producing, the trade paper reported.
