The dispute over Watchmen won't be handed down by a judge next week after all. Fox and Warner Bros. have reached a settlement and will request that the case be dismissed. According to The Hollywood Reporter:
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but the deal is said to involve a sizable cash payment to Fox and a percentage of the film's boxoffice grosses; Fox will not be a co-distributor on the film, nor will it co-own the Watchmen property, but it will share in revenue derived from it.
The best news of all, though, came in a joint statement the companies released:
Warner Bros. and Fox, like all Watchmen fans, look forward with great anticipation to this film's March 6 release in theaters.
