V FOR VENDETTA
There’s an update from producer Joel Silver over at EcranLarge.com, which caught the movie mogul at the 31st Deauville American Film Festival. “The ‘V for Vendetta’ story was written in the late 80’s and takes place in a society in an alternate world,” Silver said, “and the recent events in London does not affect this scenario. At first, we wanted to release the movie in November but the principal shooting was finished just a few weeks ago and considering all the post-production work which is to be done, especially the special effects, we decided to postpone the release until March 2006.” No, you’re not having a stroke, the site is written in French.
