'Logan's Run' Success May Get Nicolas Winding Refn 'Wonder Woman'

Wonder Woman / Nicolas Winding Refn

Back in June of 2010, director Nicolas Winding Refn surprisingly mentioned his genuine desire to direct a feature film adaptation of DC Comics female superhero Wonder Woman. At the time, Refn said, "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." There hasn't been any real development on that front at all (as far as we know at least), but with Drive seemingly getting more attention than his previous films, and a high profile remake of Logan's Run on the way, it sounds like there's a chance it could happen. Read on!

As of now, it sounds like the success of his first high profile feature, the remake of the aforementioned 1976 sci-fi film, will be the key to him potentially getting his wish. At Empire Big Screen 2011 (via The Playlist) Refn said: "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." This is obviously far from being anything official, by any means, but it would stand to reason that Refn's success on Logan's Run could certainly land him a big comic book franchise like this. It would be quite a departure from films like Bronson and Valhalla Rising, but if he's got the passion and the right ideas, then Wonder Woman could finally get the big screen treatment she deserves.

I hope it's the hit DC needs after the unfairly trounced Green Lantern. Batman is going to run out of steam after the one coming up. But, what looks to be a good S-Man is also on he way.

unfairly? Umm excuse me? That movie sucked on every level. My non GL fan friends thought it was awful and as a MASSIVE GL fan I thought it was one of the worst comic book movies I'd seen in years... Maybe not Jonah Hex bad, but still it was awful.

GL had its flaws, it did not "suck on every level."

Logan's Run is such a cult classic. I hope he doesn't muck it up. Yeah I know the original has the cheesiest FX but so what?
