HOLLYWOOD – A sequel to the cult dystopian thriller V for Vendetta will be based in the USA.
Producers are setting V for Vendetta 2 in the United States. The 2005 thriller achieved cult success on its release. The Guy Fawkes mask worn by V (Hugo Weaving) has since entered the cultural psyche for groups such as Anonymous. Natalie Portman returns as Evey. She spoke with the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
The relevance of the original movie is so strong today, it’s hard to escape. So we decided that Evey has moved across the Atlantic to the US in order to escape a resurgent fascist government in the UK. However, in America instead of welcome she finds an even more brutal state of affairs. Mass distraction, unprecedented surveillance, the government peopled by corporate lackeys and a supreme leader called Drumpf who has fooled the populace that he is the the solution with his party The New Wind.
Are there any parallels with the new administration?
None at all.
