V for Vendetta Purefoy discusses his role in V for Vendetta
Now that V for Vendetta has started production, Warner Bros has stepped it into high gear to get a little warm-up press for the film starring Natalie Portman and James Purefoy.

All On Vendetta

The official V for Vendetta site has recently posted a ton of interview footage from the cast and crew for the film. My favorite clips come from Natalie Portman, as she attempts to explain the premise of the film and her own role. Natalie claims, "it's a very human story... and because its human its not black and white, it's much more complicated and ambiguous." Having read the graphic novel by Alan Moore, I think Portman hit it on the head. Through out the entire book it was hard to tell if 'V' was actually a good guy or a bad guy. Was 'V's' motives pure? Another great aspect is that the book pushes anarchy, but also rips on the problems that result from anarchy. Talk about a mind f@ck.

Another aspect to the interview that proved the strong commitment behind V for Vendetta was when Natalie Portman was asked about the period of the graphic novel where her character is subjected to torture. During this period, Eve [the girl character Portman will play] loses weight and has her head shaved. Natalie Portman did confirm that she will shave her head when that scene is ready to shoot.

The last bit that stuck out in my mind is the interview with James Purefoy, who will be playing the part of 'V'. The movie will never show Purefoy's face, as he will always be wearing the mask [just as in the graphic novel].

Well, enough about me talking about it, head over and check out the interview clips for V for Vendetta.
