Agent Smith has a Vendetta
The upcoming V for Vendetta movie from The Wachowski Brothers and Joel Silver has gotten a new lead actor in the form of Hugo Weaving. He replaces former lead James Purefoy, who left the production for so far unknown reasons.
Wow. He's played a transvestite, an evil computer program and a noble elf, and has been part of two of the most famous film trilogies in movies today. Hugo Weaving should certainly be able to do great stuff in this comic-to-film translation. Can't wait to see it.
V for Vendetta is slated for a November 2005 release.
