Refn Dreams of Directing Wonder Woman

Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn is on the PR circuit talking up his latest film Valhalla Rising, but got talking about a dream job of his and hopes that he can get the gig.

He wants to direct Wonder Woman.

MovieWeb quotes:

“After Valhalla Rising I thought the most surprising thing for me would be to go to Los Angeles and do a studio movie. Coming from a movie where I had complete control – I also own the movie – and had complete, kind of like, accessibility around me, and then going to Hollywood and doing a film within the studio, which is very much the opposite, I thought could be a very interesting experience for me.

I guess one of the aims I am having, but at the very early stage, I always wanted to do Wonder Woman as a feature film…Well, I would say that Wonder Woman is probably something that, to me, would be not just a satisfaction, but almost a [catharsis], and I was born to make it.”

While there is quiet development over a Wonder Woman film, I don’t know that his passionate interest is enough. If that were the case, I would have written the Star Wars prequels.

Ok, he is in the industry so he might be closer to his goal than mine.

I am not familiar at all with anything Refn has done, but I find it interesting that this director would want to move from directing films that he has full control over and dive into the Hollywood mess where the studios have a leash on their directors.

In most cases it seems that directors complain about studio interference, and praise studios that let them do what they wanted.

I figure if they do move with Wonder Woman, it will be a high profile director, and someone with a good fit for the character. While Refn has a passion and drive for the character (and that may translate into an accurate depiction)

Whoever they get, I hope they dont cast someone like Fox or Olga to get a hot body in the suit. They need someone who can act and look good.
