Glu Mobile today announced that it will be publishing a mobile game based on the forthcoming Warner Bros. Pictures super hero film Watchmen. The game will launch worldwide in conjunction with the film’s U.S. premiere in March 2009. Watchmen, based on the most celebrated graphic novel of all-time published by DC Comics, is a thrilling mystery-adventure set in an alternate 1985 America where heroes roam as members of society.

“We are excited to continue our relationship with Warner Bros. to create the mobile game based on this highly anticipated film,” said Jill Braff, senior vice president of global publishing, Glu Mobile. “Like the film, the mobile game will engage long-time fans of the novel, as well as those who are getting to know Watchmen for the first time.”

Today’s announcement marks the fifth title Glu will develop and publish through its licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. Other titles developed with WBDD include Speed Racer, The Dark Knight, Superman/Batman: Heroes United and Bugs Bunny: Rabbit Rescue.

Watchmen is known for its unconventional take on the lives of super heroes, depicting them as real people, confronting the trials and tribulations of everyday human life. The film is being directed by Zack Snyder who was behind the success of the box office hit 300. The cast includes such stars as Billy Crudup as Dr. Manhattan, Jeffrey Dean Morgan as The Comedian and Matthew Goode in the role of Ozymandias. Other Watchmen are played by Malin Ackerman, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley and Patrick Wilson.
