Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

Christina Hendricks Wanted For Wonder Woman

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.

I love me some Joanie on Mad Men, but not sure Hendricks is Wonder Woman material. What do you say?
