MyMovies.net attended a press conference on Friday in Berlin for the start of production of Warner Bros.’ V For Vendetta. Stars James Purefoy and Natalie Portman, as well as director James McTeigue and producer Joel Silver, were on-hand to discuss the Wachowski brothers’ adaptation of the Alan Moore graphic novel.
