Malin Akerman, star of Paramount Pictures’ remake of The Heartbreak Kid as the lunatic wife of Ben Stiller, excitedly told ComingSoon.net/Superhero Hype! at the press day that although she loves her comic role and working with the Farrelly brothers, she’s looking forward to shooting Zack Snyder’s Watchmen, because it’s such a change from her current project.
Malin Akerman: This is a really cool role. She’s sort of the psychology of the film because she’s the only woman in the “Watchmen” aside from the previous “Watchmen.” She is a femme fatale, she is a kick ass fighter, and I think she sort of carries the emotion of the film because she is the only woman amongst all of these men. They’re going through sort of not being the Watchmen anymore and dealing with that as well as trying to figure out who is trying to kill them off. It’s a really, really, really well written script. [It’s a] really great role that I’m so excited to do because it’s so opposite from what I just did. It’s a wonderful novel and very true to the novel. If you’re familiar with the novel that’s it.
