  I know it's Fox News...

but still, can't you at least do some fuckin' research? From a review of V For Vendetta:

Then there’s the whole thing with Alan Moore, who wrote the graphic novel but had his name taken off of the movie. Illustrator David Lloyd left his name on the credits, which seems right. Why Moore didn’t want a “based on” credit beats me. After all, a lot of his dialogue survived. I think he’ll regret that move.

Dude. All this has been covered. Moore giving up his credit "beats" you? Well, there's a thing called Google. It'll take you to where you need to go. After being named in a plagiarism lawsuit over the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen shit-bomb,
Moore felt that enough was enough and decided that if something was worth reacting to, "it was worth overreacting to." He stated "I'd have nothing to do with films anymore. If I owned the sole copyright, like with 'Voice Of The Fire,' there would not be a film. Anything else, where others owned copyrights, I'd insist on taking my name off future films. All of the money due to me would go to the artists involved. I'd divorce myself from the film process, the film industry and any adaptations. And I felt a sense of moral satisfaction."

So, yeah, is that so hard to understand? And when it comes to regret, well, uh, no. No, he won't. No matter how good the movie is, or how much money it makes, I really doubt Alan Moore will regret passing up credit. He's already read some of the script, and found it atrocious. He's already established the fact that he has absolutely no interest in Hollywood. It's probably more likely that he'd return to DC to write a Captain Carrot book than ever express any sort of regret over not sticking to his principles.
