V FOR VENDETTA is Reportedly Getting its Own TV Series
The Alan Moore and David Lloyd V For Vendetta graphic novel has already had a great feature film adaptation, but now it sounds like it will get a TV series adaptation as well!
The news comes from Bleeding Cool, who says that the British TV network Channel 4 is the one producing it. Channel 4 is the same broadcaster and developer of projects such as Ultraviolet, Humans, Black Mirror, Utopia, Misfits, Crazyhead, Dead Set and Philip K Dick’s Electric Dreams.
There are no other details than that. We have no idea what kind of talent is working on the series, but the network has a solid resume of series that they've produced so there's a good chance that the series will end up at least being a decent show.
I'm a fan of the film, which starred Hugo Weaving, Natalie Portman, and John Hurt. It's going to be hard to top, but I'm open to the idea of seeing it adapted into a series. It would be great if it turned out to be just as good as the film. One thing about the series that I'm excited about is that they will be able to dive into the details of the characters and story a bit more.
Following world war, London is a police state occupied by a fascist government, and a vigilante known only as V uses terrorist tactics to fight the oppressors of the world in which he now lives. When V saves a young woman named Evey from the secret police, he discovers an ally in his fight against England's oppressors.
This has yet to be officially confirmed, but what do you think about the possibility of seeing a V For Vendetta TV series?
