Bronson helmer fancies Wonder Woman

Cannes 2010 - Director Nicolas Winding Refn has stated he'd like to direct Wonder Woman .

The Pusher and Bronson helmer was in Cannes this week to sell upcoming Ryan Gosling thriller Drive , and took the opportunity to share his current dream project.

"I want to make Wonder Woman," Winding Refn said, quite unambiguously. "They haven't asked me yet, but I really want to do it."

Cult TV deity Joss Whedon was attached to write and direct for a period, but left the project in 2007 citing "creative differences" with the studio.

Which is a bugger, as if there's one thing Whedon does well it is writing beautiful, kick-ass women who are surprising and complex and flawed, and there isn't nearly enough of that going around in Hollywood.
