Natalie Portman created some controversy during the 2004 election, such as when Good Morning America tried to hide her Kerry shirt behind flowers during an interview. Her next movie, V for Vendetta, scheduled for release in November, may also be controversial for its portrayal of terrorist bombings in the London subways. According to ITN:
The film is set in a futuristic London where Tube lines are destroyed after a devastating war.
Executive producer Joel Silver said: “It’s a great time for this movie. It’s a controversial film and it’s a controversial time. It’s going to make people think.”
Producer David Lloyd added: “In terms of what happened in London it’s important to try and understand what leads people to terrorism. There should be lots of movies made about terrorists.”
