V for Vendetta

Not C for Conspiracy Theory

Last week I happened to be walking through Leicester Square when it was all being decked out for the premiere of V for Vendetta, with a giant screen playing the trailer. Fimb's
husband had told me and Neil to watch out for the film as there is a scene in it where a London Underground train is blown up. In fact there appeared to be a bit of controversy about it as the producers refused "to re-edit the scenes which closely mimic murderous events in the city"

V for Vendetta in Leicester Square

In Vendetta, a futuristic London is the target of a terrorist attacks and sees the Tube lines destroyed by bombings." One of the producers David Lloyd said, "In terms of what happened in London it's important to try and understand what leads people to terrorism", and director James McTiegue went on to say, "Terrorism is one of those themes that never really goes away." From imdb.com

At least there were no conspiracy theories this time about the film makers predicting the bombings or with "chilling echoes of the London bombings" as we had with the making of the latest Bond film Casino Royale.
