Great news, V for Vendetta fans! According to Bleeding Cool, a TV series based on the 10-issue graphic novel from Alan Moore and David Lloyd is supposedly in the works from British TV network Channel 4.
This isn’t the first time the property has been adapted. V for Vendetta was first made for the screen back in 2005, and the resulting film starred Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman. While the movie itself was a solid story executed very well in its own right, it was definitely constrained by the short medium. Perhaps with the longer runtime, they’ll be able to better capture the essence of the actual comic.
Plus, this new series being developed in Britain, and as such, will better be able to reflect the actual story, which was very much a story about Britain. During the development of that first film, Moore was very critical that the story shifted to be more of an American parable than a British one. As such, he removed his name from the the work, and virtually swore off Hollywood.
Let’s hope this new take will be something that will make Moore proud.
The original graphic novel was written by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd. It takes place in a dystopian future and follows the character of V, an anarchist wearing a Guy Fawkes mask. It chronicles his attempts to take down the fascist state they live in.
