Who (or Where?) Films The Watchmen?

Rumors have been flying about the film adaptation of Alan Moore's The Watchman revolutionary comic book novel being cancelled. Now it appears that the film is 'merely' being uprooted from England, in an attempt to reduce the projected $120 million budget.

We'll see whether they actually intend to relocate it, or if the film will instead be allowed to wither and die. In any case, as with Dune, it's difficult to see how the incredibly dense source novel could possibly be handled correctly at movie length.
