Last month it was announced that Wonder Woman would once again be getting her own TV series. The new series is being developed by David E. Kelly, who is best known for his work on the shows Ally McBeal, Chicago Hope and Boston Legal. He has also written screenplays for films such as Lake Placid and Mystery, Alaska.
It looks like Warner Bros. and DC have an actress in mind to take on role of the Amazonian Princess. She is a South African model by the name of Tanit Phoenix, who appeared in the direct to DVD film Lost Boys: The Thirst. WhatsPlaying reports,
My contact passes on a rumor that the actress has actually already spoken to key members of the production team and expressed interest… and they’re (that includes some suits at Warner Bros, whom she did The Thirst with) apparently big fans, so her name will undoubtedly be amongst the four or five young actresses that are ultimately shortlisted for the role of the Amazonian princess. “She will definitely get to screen test”, says an insider.
Phoenix definitely looks the part! She's 5'9 and extremely good looking. She's also appeared in Lord Of War with Nic Cage, as well as a few other straight to dvd flicks. She's also been cast as a lead in HBO's upcoming show Femme Fatales.
Check out the picture below and let us know if you think she's a good choice for the character.
