Elizabeth Hurley confirmed that she will also cast in NBC’s Wonder Woman.
The Austin Powers star posted on Twitter about her casting on the superhero reboot.
She said, “Thrilled to be doing the NBC pilot Wonder Woman. I’ll be playing the evil villain. Can’t wait.”
The actress’ character runs a pharmaceutical company that is making a drug that makes people stronger. She wants to build an army that will, among other devilish things, take down Wonder Woman, whom she’s fiercely jealous of.
According to sources, Hurley’s deal isn’t done and the role is considered a guest starring gig also.
David E. Kelley is reinventing Diana Prince as a modern day hero with Adrianne Palicki in the title role.
