Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn ( Drive , Bronson ) has revealed he’d cast Mad Men star Christina Hendricks as Wonder Woman if he ever got to make a movie about the superheroine.
Refn recently worked with Hendricks on Drive . The film stars Ryan Gosling as a stuntman, and has been earning rave reviews across the festival circuit.
The director’s long been attempting to get his version of Wonder Woman onto the big screen. “If I get to do it, she’s going to be it,” Refn told Vulture of his dream casting.
In what could be seen as a two-pronged attack on rights holders Warner Bros, only last year Hendricks told Collider : “I’ve been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life.”
No Wonder Woman film is currently on the WB’s slate - Joss Whedon's attempt was shooed out of their offices, while David E Kelley’s recent Wonder Woman TV show failed at the first hurdle.
Next for Refn is remake Logan's Run . If the director continues to garner acclaim, expect him to get his shot at Wonder Woman in the near future.
