Natalie Portman Creating Controversy, Again

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.”
