Could a Wonder Woman film starring, of all people, Christina Hendricks, be in the works? Oh pretty please!
According to the director of the new movie Drive, Nicholas Winding Refn, he was told by a studio exec that if Logan’s Run is a moneymaker, he’ll get his prized project.
Refn’s has been told by studio executives that his dream adaptation of “Wonder Woman” depends on the success of his first blockbuster, “Logan’s Run”.
“I would love to make ‘Wonder Woman.’ And I also think that Christina Hendricks would be the perfect Wonder Woman, but Warner Bros haven’t called yet. But I’m getting closer with ‘Logan’s Run.’ I think someone said to me in a meeting that if I get ‘Logan’s Run’ right, then I’ll get ‘Wonder Woman.”
Here is excerpt from an interview with I09:
How do you update a film like [Logan's Run]? Do you keep Box?
“I have done this, I’ve gone back, and I’ve seen the movie, I’ve seen the TV show and I’ve started to read the novels. I’ve read the first one. And I’m beginning to get an angle on it that I think could be interesting. I think the challenge with Logan’s Run is that the premise is so brilliant, that the payoff will almost always be disappointing. Except, if you come up with something really, really, really, really brilliant.”
Do you have that? You’re planning on altering something?
“I think it needs to be altered, because everything in Logan’s Run became true, and more in our society nowadays. So it’s thinking “What would Logan’s Run feel like if it was written today, about 2,000 years into the future.”
Please let this happen! I already like this guy and I have yet to see one of his films. Logan’s Run better be a hit damn it! Ryan Gosling will be starring in the movie, he is expected to play Logan 5 which was played by Michael York in the 1976 film.
