Zack Snyder's staying super busy since his 300 surpassed expectations at the box office and garnered positive reviews from the majority of critics. Snyder's currently hard at work on bringing Watchmen, based on what's considered the best graphic novel ever written, to the big screen. And now word comes that Snyder's booked the directing job on Warner Bros Pictures' The Illustrated Man.

The Illustrated Man is a collection of short stories written by Ray Bradbury back in the early 1950s. Included in the collection are stories of space travel, virtual reality, aliens, and robots. Zack and Debbie Snyder will be producing The Illustrated Man with Frank Darabont and Denise Di Novi. Alex Tse has been tapped to adapt the film (Tse also adapted Watchmen).

Snyder will work on The Illustrated Man after completing Watchmen for Warner Bros.
