  • Director Nicolas Winding Refn wants Christina Hendricks to be his Wonder Woman

    The Wonder Woman reboot may have failed as a TV show, but if Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn has his way, DC Comics’ All-American heroine will become the subject of a feature film starring “Mad Men” redheaded brick house, Christina Hendricks.

    HOT SHOTS: Christina Hendricks.

    “First of all, she’s an awesome actress,” Refn fawned to New York Magazine. “Second, she’s so beautiful and so sexy and such a powerhouse of a woman that Liv, my wife, said that’s the prototype of a real woman. She has everything a guy would want. And yet she’s everything a girl thinks is the right way to look. So for me, she’s the perfect choice.”

    STYLE: Get Christina’s Curvy Style.

    The fact that Hendricks is closer to 40 than 30 doesn’t bother the director of “Drive.” “She’s mature, which I think Wonder Woman has to be, because it’s a very complex character,” he explained. “You know, the whole Wonder Woman concept is ‘What if women were more powerful than men?’ And I certainly can’t come up with a more ideal choice to play that, both consciously because she’s very smart but also because of her sensibility and her physicality … so for me, she’s the perfect choice because she has so much sensibility and sexuality, but it’s true sexuality. And she has a body to die for. I certainly don’t know anybody of both sexes who doesn’t find her extremely attractive.”

    Refn is currently working with Ryan Gosling on a remake of “Logan’s Run” for Warner Bros., but sadly for fans of Wonder Woman and Hendricks, the potential summer blockbuster has not been given the green light by Warner Bros.—or anyone else.

    HOT SHOTS: Voluptuous the New Black?

    But Refn has a diabolical plan to pique the studio’s interest. “All you have to do is say, ‘Warner Brothers has agreed to make Wonder Woman with Nicolas,’” Refn pleaded with the New York magazine writer. “We’ll just write it, and then Warner Brothers will be like, ‘Did we do that? Well, I guess we did it. It says we did it, so I guess we did it!’”

    Are you listening, Warner Bros.?
