V for Vendetta's Portman Wows Fans

Comic-con attendees gave the Star Wars star a warm welcome as she talked about V for Vendetta.
Natalie Portman talked with fans at last weekend’s Comic-con, promoting V for Vendetta. A clip was also shown: "There were plenty of shots of a fascist Britain (obviously reminiscent of Nazi Germany), Natalie being interrogated as to the whereabouts of V, our hero in action throwing his swords, explosions and more. It seemed to me to be very 'Natalie heavy' with less focus on V than you might assume (considering he's the title character and all)," according to JoBlo.com.

The Wachowski Brothers' adaptation of Alan Moore’s maxi-series will be previewed this weekend with some copies of The Island.

Portman said she prepped for the role by reading Antonia Fraser's "Faith and Treason: The Story of the Gunpowder Plot," "Macbeth" and "Twelfth Night." She said she wanted to try and understand how people can justify violence for their political beliefs, according to JoBlo.

Producer Joel Silver added that the Wachowski Brothers wrote a script for the film before The Matrix got off the ground and said he wasn't sure if Vendetta creator Moore's name was on the film. He added, however, that he still finds Moore "brilliant" but that he wouldn't be happy with the movie unless it was a straight book-to-film adaptation.
