Hey, remember David E. Kelly’s “Single Female Lawyer” version of Wonder Woman which hilariously imploded? Well, just stare at the banner picture for a little while and all will be forgotten. Christina Hendricks just has that effect on people.
Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, the upcoming Logan’s Run remake with Ryan Gosling) has been talking about Wonder Woman for quite some time. He’s also been taking on more studio-friendly directorial jobs lately (Drive, the aforementioned Logan’s Run) to put himself in a position to be offered a big project like Wonder Woman. Now here’s the awesome news:
At the U.S. premiere of Refn’s Ryan Gosling neo-noir Drive at the Los Angeles Film Festival last night, Refn referenced the Wonder Woman project he’s long wanted to make, then pointed at his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks and said, “If I ever get to do it, she’s going to be it.” Hendricks would almost certainly be game — she told Rachael Ray last year that “I’ve been wanting to wear that outfit my whole life … I had Underoos — I had Wonder Woman Underoos.” Warner Bros., sign these people up now!

Listen to Vulture, Warner Brothers. DO IT. Also, find us some recent pictures of Hendricks in underoos. For research purposes.
