Producers of Natalie Portman's forthcoming film V For Vendetta have refused to edit out scenes of bombings on the London Underground train network, despite the recent terrorist attacks in the British capital.
Fifty-five people were killed and over 700 injured when a double-decker bus and three trains were targetted by suicide bombers on July 7. Last week, one person was injured during four failed terror attacks on different underground railway lines and a bus in east London.
In V For Vendetta, a futuristic London is the target of a terrorist attacks and sees the tube lines destroyed by bombings.
Executive producer Joel Silver says: "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."
Fellow producer David Lloyd adds: "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."
Director James McTiegue explains: "Terrorism is one of those themes that never really goes away."
