Is Grant Morrison Writing His Own Watchmen?

In an interview with Comic Book Resources, superstar author Grant Morrison let slip that he's currently working on a mini-series for DC Comics featuring the Charlton Comics superhero characters Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons used as the basis for Watchmen, and that he intends to tell the story in a Watchmen-esque fashion, "written backwards and sideways and filled with all kinds of symbolism." The series may not be published until sometime next year, but given Morrison's longtime rivalry with Moore, and DC's probable desire to capitalize on one of its all-time best-selling books while deftly sidestepping an artistically sacrilegious sequel, the result ought to be very interesting.
