Wonder Woman film setting up in the UK
A starry cast is assembling in the UK to shoot a new film version of Wonder Woman, with Chris Pine the latest recruit reportedly boarding the project.
Israeli actress Gal Gadot is lined up as Diana Prince - a role which she also played in the forthcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which completed production in New Mexico in December.
The original DC Comics Wonder Woman made her debut in print in the early 1940s - a warrior princess of the Amazons armed with a tiara as a weapon and bracelets that can ward off attack.
Wonder Woman is one of several big Hollywood projects lining up to shoot on these shores over the next six months; if you're a subscriber to Production Intelligence make sure you follow these titles so you don't miss our regular updates.
