Wonder Woman casting rumours quashed
According to Rachel Bilson the rumours of her as Wonder Woman are unfounded. She said today that she didn't know where they had come from and hadn't heard them until now.
So with that rumour out of the way, thanks to IESB through CinemaBlend, onto the next, which as soon as I read were quashed - what is going on?!
Entertainment Weekly through SuperHero Hype have an interview with Katharine McPhee (Americon Idol runner up turned actress) where she's asked about the rumour of her playing the part and she let's us know the truth:
I'm not gonna deny it, or admit to it. But it's funny because no one has even received this so-called Wonder Woman script. It's like there's so much buzz created around a script that isn't even in the hands of any actresses yet. And that's all I'll really say. Yes, there have been, you know, like, conversations about it, but as far as the role being mine, or me being the lead up for it, I don't really know...
...I think it would be a huge mistake for me to attempt to tackle a role like that for my debut. I really want to make smart choices, and I don't think that would be a smart choice. A lot of times, regardless of whether you're a blockbuster actress, those kinds of movies fail. So it wouldn't be very smart for the girl off a reality television show to take a film like that for her first motion picture.
Very wise words...so it's not her either. Damn rumours! Back to the guessing board then.
