Ada masalah dengan V for Vendetta, masalah dengan penulis novel grafiknya Alan Moore, penulis yang mengilhami idea utama filem ini.
(Filem ini dilakonkan oleh seorang aktres manis, Natalie Portman si gadis Yahudi yang pernah berkata beliau tidak akan berlakon kecuali untuk filem yang serasi dengan nilai perjuangannya, nilainya juga political. Oh ya! Jangan takut klik di atas foto ini untuk mengenali Nat dengan lebih 'jelas', hehehe)
Moore mahu namanya digugurkan daripada kredit filem tersebut, dan enggan dikaitkan dengannya.
Di satu laman peminat Moore, ada satu petikan artikel yang diambil dari New York Times ('The Vendetta behind V for Vendetta', 12 Mac 2006, catatan Dave Itzkoff):
On consulting for the V for Vendetta film:
"I explained to [Larry Wachowski] that I'd had some bad experiences in Hollywood," Mr. Moore said. "I didn't want any input in it, didn't want to see it and didn't want to meet him to have coffee and talk about ideas for the film."
But at a press conference on March 4, 2005, to announce the start of production on the V for Vendetta film, the producer Joel Silver said Mr. Moore was "very excited about what Larry had to say and Larry sent the script, so we hope to see him sometime before we're in the U.K."
This, Mr. Moore said, "was a flat lie."
"Given that I'd already published statements saying I wasn't interested in the film, it actually made me look duplicitous," he said.
Through his editors at DC Comics (like Warner Brothers, a subsidiary of Time Warner), Mr. Moore insisted that the studio publicly retract Mr. Silver's remarks.
When no retraction was made, Mr. Moore once again quit his association with DC (and Wildstorm along with it), and demanded that his name be removed from the V for Vendetta film, as well as from any of his work that DC might reprint in the future.
The producers of V for Vendetta reluctantly agreed to strip Mr. Moore's name from the film's credits, a move that saddened Mr. Lloyd, who still endorses the film.
"Alan and I were like Laurel and Hardy when we worked on that," Mr. Lloyd said. "We clicked. I felt bad about not seeing a credit for that team preserved, but there you go."
Dan semalam, akhbar tersohor itu (yang memenangi lebih 90 Hadiah Pulitzer) menerbitkan satu artikel menarik 'Bring 'Em Home Now' Concert: Music's Power of Protest (New York Times, 23 Mac 2006, catatan Kelefa Sanneh).
