According to TheWrap, Oscar winner and Batman Forever (1995) star Nicole Kidman is in ongoing negotiations to play a high-ranking Amazonian warrior alongside Gal Gadot in Warner Bros.’ upcoming Wonder Woman movie.
Patty Jenkins (Monster) is directing the comic book movie, which will co-star Chris Pine as Wonder Woman’s love interest Steve Trevor — who isn’t around to just send flowers and kill spiders.
While Kidman’s potential role has yet to be confirmed, the Queen of the Amazons in the ‘Wonder Woman’ comics is Hyppolyta, who also happens to be Diana Prince’s biological mother — though it’s unclear whether the film will remain faithful to that storyline.
Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are producing ‘Wonder Woman’ with Charles Roven and Richard Suckle of Atlas Entertainment. Jason Fuchs (Pan) wrote the script.
The Wonder Woman character will be introduced in next year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice before her solo movie hits theaters on June 23, 2017.
