Los Angeles: Actress Nicole Kidman is in negotiations to star in the upcoming film “Wonder Woman”, joining Gal Gadot, who plays the title role of the Amazonian Princess.
According to TheWrap, Kidman is being eyed to play “a high-ranking Amazonian warrior”, reports aceshowbiz.com.
Although Kidman’s potential role is yet to be revealed, the website speculates that she may portray the Queen of the Amazons, Hyppolyta, who in the comic books happens to be Diana Prince’s biological mother. Meanwhile, Chris Pine will appear as Wonder Woman’s love interest Steve Trevor.
Earlier rumours suggested that the film would be set mostly in the modern era with flashbacks to World War I. It’s also said that Wonder Woman would team up with Trevor to destroy Circe who, along with Ares, became the masterminds of World War III.
Patty Jenkins is on board to direct the movie with Charles Roven, Zack Snyder, Deborah Snyder and Leonard Goldberg producing it.
