V for Vendetta
Warner Bros V for Vendetta is only a day out from the one-week-to-go mark and we are pleased to be hearing from all the faces behind the mask. So far we have heard from Natalie Portman, Hugo Weaving, producer Joel Silver and director James McTeigue.
However, how about talking to the men who created the original graphic novel that the film is based upon-- Alan Moore and David Lloyd?
David Lloyd Draws V for Vendetta
Since Alan Moore had a bit of a falling out with the production of V for Vendetta I doubt Warner Bros would ever use him to help promote the film (but you never know). However, co-creator and artist of V for Vendetta, David Lloyd, seems more than happy to discuss how his images transpired onto screen.
The good people over at AICN have recently caught up with Lloyd and asking the creator a few questions about the upcoming Wachowski adaptation.
QUINT: I was curious as to how much input you had on the movie, throughout all the stages of development. Did they come to you at all?
DAVID LLOYD: No... The only input I had was they sent me the script before they started production. I got a call from Grant Hill and then Larry and Andy (Wachowski) and they sort of said, "We want to send it to you." I said to them, "Are you open to suggestions?" and they said, "Yeah." (laughs)
QUINT: Did you ever visit the set at all?
DAVID LLOYD: No, I didn't. To be honest... them having done what they've done, I don't think they really needed me, but they did invite me to be part of the crowd, sort of like a little cameo. (laughs) That's not my scene, you know... you just give me a credit and I'm happy. So, yeah... I think it's turned out really good.
QUINT: So, obviously, you've seen the movie then, yeah?
DAVID LLOYD: Yeah, I saw it in November.
David Lloyd goes into further detail on the film and the expectations he has when the movie enters theatres next week. Check out the entire interview over at AICN.
V for Vendetta will be released to theatres on March 17th, 2006.
