A TV series based on Alan Moore’s iconic comic “V for Vendetta” is reportedly in the works at Channel 4 in the UK.

Bleeding Cool broke the news, confirming the show is in development but offering no further details.

In the original comic, which is set following world war, London is a police state occupied by a fascist government. A vigilante known only as V (Hugo Weaving) uses terrorist tactics to fight the oppressors of the world in which he now lives. When V saves a young woman named Evey (Natalie Portman) from the secret police, he discovers an ally in his fight against England’s oppressors.

The Wachowskis produced and James McTeigue directed 2005 film adaptation.
