Vendetta gets director

11.18.2004

There have been attempts to translate Alan Moore's works to the screen but neither have really succeeded. So far we've seen FROM HELL and THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMAN with both producing disappointing results. Now another Moore graphic novel, V FOR VENDETTA, is getting ready for the big screen with a new director. James McTeigue, first assistant director on the MATRIX films and REVENGE OF THE SITH, will make his feature debut on the comic adaptation for Warner Bros. His MATRIX partners Larry and Andy Wachowski and Joel Silver will produce and be integral in the film's development. VENDETTA tells the story of an alternate future where Germany won WWII and Britain now a fascist state. A vigilante nicknamed "V" stalks the streets of London to destroy those who've succumbed and save those who haven't. The Wachowskis were at one time slated to direct the films themselves but stepped aside to complete work on the MATRIX trilogy. Other Moore projects in the works include the difficult job of bringing THE WATCHMEN to the screen. After the disaster that was LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, Moore vowed not to sign away any more of his stories or characters for use in film.
