Let the casting search begin! A couple of months ago, we reported that The CW was in early development on AMAZON, a prequel that will focus on the teenage life of WONDER WOMAN. Today, Warner Bros. Television has hired a casting director to launch a search for the female lead, in anticipation of a potential pilot pickup. With a story by Allan Heinberg, AMAZON will chronicle the female superheros life as a young Amazonian, before she becomes a warrior princess with super powers. According to the character breakdown obtained by Deadline Hollywood, her name is Iris with the details regarding said character described as follows:
"[Iris] comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. Shes delighted *and just as often horrified * by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. Its all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling *to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And shes completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships.
She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly whats on her mind at all times. Shes bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when youre lying to her. And she doesnt have time or patience for politics or tact because shes too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see *and things to learn *and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic *and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere."
The CW is having its biggest hit in years this fall with ARROW, a show about a DC superhero so the networks desire to try to emulate that success with another comic book-inspired franchise is understandable. The script is currently being written and while no shortlist of actresses have been revealed, who would you like to see AGAIN bring the Amazonian to the small screen? Anyone remember Adrianne Palicki's recent attempt at portraying the character over at NBC?? - Entertainment Weekly, Deadline Hollywood
