This is true. And certainly Hollywood has presented plenty about the Holocaust. However, the Holocause happend appox. half a century before "V" was made. And "V" was clever at the time for putting a sci-fi twist on the allegory.
Assuming this new project (whatever it turns out to be) does take a theme similar to what it sound like to me, I just think that Bush allegories are just done to death at this point and he's not even out of office yet. And it seems to me that people still think they are being clever by doing it.
I just discovered this news today on a Star Trek site. There is a new series and it has begun production.
I know very little of it. I did see the original in the 80's during that great time of glut of Sci-fi shows! Good fun.
All I know is that Elizabeth Mitchell is in one of the lead roles. She'll share time with Lost reprising her role of Juliet as well.
One of the producers has given an interview and discussed how this will be a new spin. He also talked about possibly having some of the original cast back to pay homage to the original and give back to the fans. Of course, Jane Badler got most of the attention in that regard.
As an allegory, this would be a logical take. If it's straight forward sci-fi action fare, I don't see it succeeding. It premieres in November.
I don't believe I would have just called the thread V without something like "V remake in the works," so the title has either been altered or it's because it was done back when we had a usable search engine.
Yes, I guess one could place a new context on that description with what has been going on in the past year. However, I would be very surprised if you're going to see much of anything out of Hollywood that would potentially be critical of a certain President.
