Alan Moore Shuns V for Vendetta Film

The iconoclastic comic writer continues to disdain movie adaptations of his work.
Alan Moore is distancing himself from the Wachowski Brothers' adaptation of his V for Vendetta maxi-series.

The film, starring Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving, is now filming and opens Nov. 4. The story centers on the premise that Britain is run by fascists in the post World War II period. A mysterious hero named V models himself after anti-royalist Guy Fawkes and leads an underground revolt.

Moore also refused to endorse film versions of his From Hell or The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Now, he's moved plans for a third volume of The League ("Dark Dossier") from DC to indy publisher Top Shelf in a continuing dispute over censorship and royalties Moore said he and artist David Gibbons were owed from The Watchmen.

It's not been stated, but it's clear that Moore won’t approve of The Watchmen film adaptation either if that film ever gets made.
