According to Bleeding Cool, Channel 4 are apparently developing Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta for television. Despite Moore having created V for Vendetta in the early ‘80s, its themes of a corrupt totalitarian regime and revenge have never seemed more prevalent in today’s world. A case of life imitating art.
Moore’s perennial tale has, of course, previously been adapted for the big screen in 2005 by the Wachowskis and James McTeigue. Starring Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman, the film was particularly notable for Alan Moore requesting that his name be disassociated with the project.
Could this be the first adaptation that finally gets the Moore seal of approval? Only time will tell.
