Joe Utichi of FilmFocus got to chat briefly with the always-cool Stephen Fry at the UK premiere of "The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy" (Mr. Fry provides the voice of the Guide), and the affable British chap shared some interesting casting news regarding "V for Vendetta." Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore, "Vendetta" is being written by Andy and Larry Wachowski ("The Matrix," "Bound") and directed by first-timer James McTeigue.Natalie Portman and James Purefoy have been on board for some time, but Mr. Fry informs us that he’s involved as well, as are actors John Hurt ("Alien"), Tim Pigott-Smith ("Bloody Sunday"), and Sinead Cusack ("I Capture the Castle"). For more info on this hotly anticipated big-screen adaptation, check out the full scoop at FilmFocus.
