Joss Whedon - ’Wonder Woman’ Movie set to be shot in Australia
mercredi 11 mai 2005, par Webmaster
Look out Superman and Ghost Rider, Wonder Woman is set to touch down in Australia in her invisible jet.
Hollywood super producer, Joel Silver, has revealed Australia is at the top of his list as the shoot location for his next blockbuster, Wonder Woman the movie.
"When I make Wonder Woman I’ll probably do it in Australia," said Silver, whose long list of profitable films, including the Die Hard and Lethal Weapon movies, have made $US5 billion ($A6.44 billion) at the box office worldwide.
"I love working in Australia.
"It makes great sense to me."
Australia has almost become the New Jersey-born Silver’s second home with the three Matrix films shot in Sydney and Ghost Ship and House of Wax on the Gold Coast.
The 52-year-old producer is also fond of Australians.
Silver hired Hugo Weaving to star and James McTeigue to direct his new action film, V for Vendetta, currently shooting in Germany with Oscar nominee Natalie Portman.
The Wonder Woman project is hush-hush at the moment, but Silver said Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon was putting the script together.
Casting is top secret.
Silver would not be drawn into speculation about who might slip into the skimpy red, white and blue costume and bullet-reflecting bracelets Lynda Carter made famous in the 1970s TV series.
"No, we’re not there yet," Silver said of the casting.
"We’re still writing the script."
The OC’s Mischa Barton was rumoured to be a candidate to play the Amazonian princess warrior, and another American actress, Jessica Biel, who was in Australia last year shooting the action film, Stealth, has also been mentioned as a potential Wonder Woman.
A date for when Wonder Woman and her magic lasso might begin shooting also was not certain.
"There’s no timeframe yet," Silver said.
"We’ve got Joss Whedon writing the script.
"When we have a script we’ll make a decision about what we’re going to do."
With Nicolas Cage filming Ghost Rider in Melbourne and American actor Brandon Routh in his cape and red underpants shooting Superman in Sydney, Australia has become a favourite destination for superheroes.
It’s also a retreat for the hardworking Silver.
"I just wish Australia wasn’t so far away," Silver said.
"I love being in Australia and I love making movies there. Australia is just a comfortable place for me to work."
