As I'm sure no one will be surprised, rumblings are circulating that Warner Bros. might postpone the opening of V for Vendetta
due to the recent London bombings.Rich Johnston latest Lying in the Gutters has the details.
Rich rates the reliability of his information as "yellow", meaning there's a 50/50 split on the validity of the information. But as this is the first time I've seen the idea of moving back the release date mentioned in public, I should point it out.
Rich also gives a brief review of the script, which I shall brazenly quote without permission:
It's impossible to read this objectively. I keep running up against Evey not setting out as a prostitute before she gets attacked, the V V V V speech, the abandonment of any mention of anarchy, the allegory of Guy Fawkes being boosted, the lack of subtlety in dialogue, V not being God in his address to the public, the reinvention of the Voice Of Fate as a shock jock and the mixture of Americanism and Dick Van Dykeism of London.
But the Valerie monologue is there and remains relatively unscathed. Possibly makes the whole thing worthwhile.
Rich promises an in-depth review in his next column.
