If Logan's Run goes well, Nicolas Winding Refn could get the chance to do Wonder Woman

08.16.2011

Nicolas Winding Refn still wants to make a Wonder Woman film. He still wants to put Christina Hendricks in the lead role. All of this could be possible if Refn hits it out of the park with his remake of LOGAN'S RUN.

When The Playlist spoke with the director at Empire Big Screen in London, they learned that he's getting closer and closer to the project:

“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.’”

Everything is hanging on by an "if". There's no doubt in my mind that Refn's Wonder Woman would be much better than that disaster of a show David E. Kelley tried to pull off. I'd be willing to let him have the chance. BRONSON was freaking excellent, DRIVE looks like it's going to be great, and as for LOGAN'S RUN...I have no idea. We'll see if it all pans out in Refn's favor.

I'd pretty much let this guy direct anything he wants. Bronson was a truly amazing movie - I haven't seen anything like it.

Drive also looks amazing. I hope he gets to elite levels and can just make any movie he wants.

Yes yes yes! I think Refn has the smarts and skills to make a great Wonder WOman movie. I also think hell make a great Logans Run Film. i dont want to see Refn turn into some huge hollywood film maker though his small scale work is great see Valhalla Rising!

I'm for an update of Logan's Run. Hopefully they'll keep a particular scene (originally with Jenny Agutter) in there.
Refn is a skilled director and should do great with L.R. and Wonder Woman. I always liked the idea of Charisma Carpenter for that role, but I'm sure there will be some good actresses to choose from when the time comes.

I hope Logan's Run is closer to the book then the original was.

I'm kind of still on the fence on a Wonder Woman movie..specially after the epic fail of the tv pilot.

I love Hendricks BUT...

Wonder Woman isn't and never has been a redhead and she's more about the overall look and fitness than she is about just the boobs, which let's face it, is the main reason we all love Christina, but she's not the most athletic woman and I just don't think she'd fit the role. I've said it before I'll say it again, COBIE SMULDERS.

If... Then...

So:
If... we wAnt to see Christina Hendricks in the Wonder Woman costume...
Then... we all should buy as many tickets to Logan's Run as possible.

Smart marketing, Mr. Refn. Well played, sir.
