Michael J. Bassett wrote:As for Kit Harington as Vincent. Well, I knew that would get you all fired up. I’ve never made any secret that this is going to be an adaptation of the game and not a slavish reproduction. So for me I can say that I always found Vincent in the game a fascinating but ultimately redundant character. He’ seemed to me to have no purpose in the narrative other than to offer a counterpoint view of what the Order/Claudia are doing. He is, if you like, the acceptable face of the zealots. His ideas and dialogue are interesting and I wanted to preserve some of that but I also wanted to use him in a more dynamic and interesting way for the film narrative. How it plays out in the movie, you’re simply going to have to wait and see but I don’t think it’s going to be exactly what any of you think. (or maybe it is. I don’t know.) Will some of you hate it? Absolutely. Because it is different. But will others maybe think it’s a neat twist on what you would expect? I hope that too.
