James Purefoy James Purefoy will be 'V'
TheHollywoodReporter recently announced that James Purefoy has recently signed on to star opposite of Natalie Portman in the upcoming graphic novel adaptation V for Vendetta. V for Vendetta is one of the many dark graphic novels written by Alan Moore. If you are into Fahrenheit 451 or 1984, this story may be right up your alley. Of course, you must also throw in a preference to the Guy Fawkes mask.

V for Vendetta Grows

V for Vendetta is one of the many newly discovered graphic novels for adaptation to the big screen. With the success of comic book films, it seems that graphic novels [which are usually darker and more twisted] from writers such as Frank Miller and Alan Moore was the obvious next step.

V for Vendetta is a retelling of 1984 and Fahrenheit 451. The story takes place in an imaginary England where 'the War', a nuclear war at that, and a take over of the government by the Labour party has caused Britain to become a fascist state. Imagine a totalitarian state under Hitler, but in this state each part of the system has a function, such as 'the Voice' and 'the Eye' and 'the Finger.' [more below]

Amidst this new mess of a government is a concentration camp survivor who fancies himself by wearing a Guy Fawkes mask and terrorizing political establishments. The 'terrorist,' goes under the codename of 'V' and has only one mission-tear down the new government and allow anarchy to reign king.

James Purefoy is known for films such as A Knight's Tale, Resident Evil, and Vanity Fair. Purefoy has such an authority presence, that he can easily fill the role of 'V' in V for Vendetta.
