V FOR VENDETTA

Written by

Larry and Andy Wachowski

Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore

FADE IN:

In the darkness, we hear a voice, a woman's voice. Her name
is Evey.

EVEY (V.O.)
"Remember, remember, the fifthof
November, the gunpowder treason and
plot. I know of now reason why the
gunpowder treason should ever be
forgot."

Her voice has a strength that is metered by a calmness, a
deep centered peace that we can feel.

EVEY (V.O.)
Those werealmost the very first
words he spoke to me and, in a way,
that is where this story began,
four hundred years ago, in a cellar
beneath the Houses of Parliament.

In the darkness, we find a lantern. Guy Fawkes, a dangerous
man who wears a goatee, is struggling with a wheelbarrowstacked with barrels of gunpowder.

EVEY (V.O.)
In 1605, Guy Fawkes attempted to
blow up the Houses of Parliament.

The wheelbarrow bumps over the heavy stone mortar of the
cellar floor. From the dark depths, we hear the sound of
dogs.

EVEY (V.O.)He was caught in the cellars with
enough gunpowder to level most of
London.

Guy sees lanterns coming from both sides. He tries to run as
the dogs reach him first. He grabs for his sword as dozens
of pole axes pin him against the tunnel's stone wall.

EVEY (V.O.)Sometimes I wonder where we would
be if he hadn't failed. I wonder
if it would have mattered.

In the dim pre-dawn light, Guy is led to the gallows.

EVEY (V.O.)
I suppose the answer is in the
rhyme. More than the man, what we
must remember is theplot itself.

The coarse noose of rope is snugged up to Guy's throat. He
looks into the crowd until he finds a face, a woman's face,
staring up at him.

EVEY (V.O.)
For in the plot we find more than
just a man, we find the idea of
that man, the spirit of that man,and that is what we must never
forget.

The lever is thrown and the woman looks down, a tear falling
down her face.

EVEY (V.O.)
This, then, is the story of that
idea, of that spirit that began
with an anarchist's plot fourhundred years ago.

Guy's body hangs in silhouette, lifeless against a red
morning sun.

FADE OUT.

FADE IN:

INT. SUBURBAN HOUSE

A young Evey sits on her father's lap, combing her Barbie's
hair.

EVEY (V.O.)
I wasborn near the end of the
millennium, the year 1997. My
father used to say that people were
so afraid that the world was going
to end that they were willing it to
happen.

Her father sits beside her mother on the living room couch,
watching the news. From the look on...
