Warner Bros V for Vendetta, based off of the graphic novel by Alan Moore, has just hit its second hiccup when the studio announced that they were only kidding when we hear 'V' say "Remember, remember the fifth of November" at the end of the film's teaser trailer. Due to various reasons [mentioned below], we must now wait till 2006 to see this story hit the big screen.

V for Vendetta Pushed Back

The one good thing about the news is the fact that V for Vendetta isn't being pushed back for re-shoots, further editing, or an added finish. Instead, Warner Bros claims that the film just won't be ready by November 5th. If this is the truth, that should be fine by us. Moviegoers should rather see a 'finished' film than one quickly put together to turn a buck or two. However, these reasons still do have their skeptics.

Considering that V for Vendetta does cover the topic of terrorism to ignite a revolution to overthrow none other than England, some might find a bit of an uncomfortable relation for this Warner Bros film to the recent terrorist bombings in London. So, it is slightly possible that the film was pushed back just for this reason... but I doubt it. The crew has already been repeatedly asked about the London bombings and the effect on the film with every interview ending in the same response-- the Wachowski brothers and James McTeigue just don't care.

However, some still believe that the London bombings are having the same effect on V for Vendetta as Domino Harvey's death had on the upcoming film Domino. But, if you take a look closer, Domino was re-pushed back after being pushed forward soon after Domino's death. Again, some of the crew have claimed that the 'real' reason is that the film just won't be ready by the new release date. So, don't worry, if anything it will give the cast and crew of V for Vendetta more time to polish up.

A more plausible excuse, however, would have been that they want to avoid the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire [also Warner Bros] mania that is about to ensue this November.

The new release date for V for Vendetta is March 17th, 2006.
