First he created America's Sweetheart "Ally McBeal," and now David E. Kelley is ready to take on a national treasure. The Hollywood writer/producer is bringing Wonder Woman back to the small screen.
DC Comics has been hoping to reboot the Wonder Woman franchise ever since the popular '70s TV series starring Lynda Carter went off the air. According to Deadline.com, the company has spent the past decade developing a movie about the amazing Amazon, who made her comic book debut in 1941.
While new Superman and Batman movies have successfully gotten off the ground in recent years – with a Green Lantern flick also set for release in 2011 - the Wonder Woman project somehow lost its power.
Then a hero arrived in the form of Kelley, who reportedly met with the DC team and convinced them to take the sexy superhero to television.
Though stars including Beyoncé, Megan Fox, and Angelina Jolie have been attached to the movie project, there's no word yet on who might don the iconic eagle bustier, magic lasso, and bulletproof bracelets when Wonder Woman soars onto TV screens.
rewrite the script for present day times and let Linda do her thing. Now we have the real WW, not a generic one. Harrison Ford did it in Indiana Jones.
You really can't beat Jill Wagner, who wanted to do the WW movie until Warner Bros. blew it for all of us. She was awesome on Blade the series, and ACTUALLY looks like WW.
PLEASE NOT ANGELINA JOLIE...THAT WOULD BE A DISGRACE TO WONDER WOMAN!
What about the woman in "SANDS OF PERSIA", Gemma Atherton ?
Julia Voth might be pretty good inthe role
Nadia Bjorlin is a good choice
Jennifer Love Hewitt? Are you KIDDING ME??????? Give me air...
I agree that an unknown might be better. Though I think if they go forward with the TV show, they are effectively scraping any hopes for a movie since a TV show will probably be a flop no matter who stars in it.
Jennifer Love Hewitt is too short, Wonder Woman is supposed to be like 6 feet tall. Lynda Carter was about 5 feet 9 so someone in the upper 5 feet range would do nicely. Amy Acker may be a good fit.
I think Jennifer Love Hewitt would be great as well. Anyone over the age of 30 would be appreciated.
An unknown would be good, but I bet you they'll make it geared toward a younger audience (a la Smallville, barf). I just hope its smart and interesting unlike the Bionic Woman which was... boring... I honestly gave it a shot and it was just blah. Despite my great love of Joss Whedon it was the same thing with Dollhouse. Blah.
Maybe they can make it like a cross between first season heroes greatness and firefly's ability to mix comedy and drama. *shrug* but thats asking for too much.
Please look through "bollywood and find a good actress for the movie, not Beyonce! and not Angelina Jolie. Use some real talent people and give us a break from Bootylucious and the lips that won't die!
obviously your and ugly woman, because 100% of the men are all for casting bootylucious
OMG! you have me rolling! hahaha. Those lips that won't die! LOL. I so agree & thanks for the laughter. No comment on Beyonce. WW is not black so why would we even consider this? Don't ruin it like they did the "Wild Wild West'" when they used Fresh Prince of Bel Aire! gosh!
Please don't use a known star. That would just kill it, or any friggin diva. Just do a casting call and pick some unknown.
I concur! Get someone who is an unknown like Lynda Carter when she started. All of these stars are great & all but frankly, they lack the specialness( is that a word?) that Lynda Carter brought. Can we get someone new & unknown please? Look for her at the Miss Universe or Miss USA or Miss America contests!
I think Jennifer Love Hewitt would do a fantastic job in the role of Wonder Woman, on T.V. or the big screen
1. Jessica Alba
2. Christina Hendricks
3. Kate Beckinsale
Love the use of Wonder Woman and Head in the same sentance, epic.
I think a movie would have been fun, but a t.v. show? It's been done, usually that doesn't work out.
