David Lloyd, who created the V for Vendetta comic book with Alan Moore, said he feels the Wachowski Brothers' screenplay adaptation for the upcoming movie was a good representation of the original.

"I never had a purist concept of Vendetta as just a comic," Lloyd said. "It always felt like an idea that could be transposed to other forms of media. In any of my work, the only expectation and desire is that the spirit and key elements are retained and the same essential message is captured."

Key revisions included movie the story's timeline into around 2020, streamlining Moore and Lloyd's storyline, altering Evey's background and making her older than in the original material.

"The graphic novel is quite sprawling and has a lot of characters," director James McTeigue said. "Some of those characters had to be amalgamated or taken out, but all the while we made sure we were adhering to the themes and integrity of the graphic novel."

"It¹s a highly ambitious attempt to move something from one medium to another," said Stephen Rea, who plays Finch. "Graphic novels are obviously static, single frames, and you're transposing that to a moving picture. It's tricky and not entirely realistic, but I found that interesting. It was good to be working with something that has a certain heightened quality to it."
