According to a joint filing yesterday from Fox and Warner Bros., who were reportedly "close" to a settlement in their battle over Watchmen's distribution rights, the studios have requested a hearing today at 3:30 p.m. "to report on a final resolution or, alternatively, to discuss how to proceed on January 20, 2009," which was the date a trial was (is?) to begin.
