In just a few short months David E. Kelley‘s new Wonder Woman show for NBC has turned fans from optimistic onlookers to prognosticators of doom. Casting Adrianne Palicki seemed like a good move, and may well have been, but the first draft of the costume was terrible, and revisions only partially rectified things. But the costume isn’t the only thing getting revisions.
More problematic is word that the pilot script kicks off a series that features “a reinvention of the iconic D.C. comic in which Wonder Woman — aka Diana Prince — is a vigilante crime fighter in L.A. but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.” That reportedly involves three separate identities, a good deal of crying and an Ally McBeal tone that doesn’t sound very Wonder Woman at all. The latest round of info is that script revisions were done late in the process, as the pilot was shooting, to make the show a bit more tough. Will it help? Read More »

We’re not going to throw every new look at Adrianne Palicki as Wonder Woman your way, but the first decent-quality video is probably worth sharing. After the first costume reveal, subsequent round of boos and costume tweaks that followed, the character looks a little better. And seeing her (or the stunt woman version of Wonder Woman) in action helps make the character look a little more like the classic TV incarnation, which isn’t entirely a bad thing. We still have no idea what to expect from the show, but check out the video below and see what you think. Read More »

We’ve got quite a few little updates on comic book related projects today — enough that DC Comics characters get their own post. First up is a possible logo for Wonder Woman, seen above. This was snapped on set, but that doesn’t mean it is final. It will, however, give you a general idea of the design for the new David E. Kelley produced show, which stars Adrianne Palicki as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman and Cary Elwes, Tracie Thoms, Pedro Pascal and Elizabeth Hurley. [WonderWomanTV]

Where has Elizabeth Hurley been? She hasn’t had a screen role since 2004, seemingly spending her time raising family and doing charity work in the meantime. Now she’s making her way back to movie screens — she’s got a voice role in the animated film The Wild Bunch, and now says that she’ll be the ‘evil villain’ in the new Wonder Woman TV series.

Friday Night Lights actress Adrianne Palicki has been cast as DC superhero Wonder Woman in the announced NBC television pilot. The show is said to be a non-campy take on the character that presents the superhero character as “a vigilante crime fighter in LA but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.” Palicki will also play Wonder Woman’s two alter egos, a mega-billionaire CEO named Diana Themyscira and Diana’s “plain Jane” assistant Diana Prince.

The sex comedy Elektra Luxx premiered almost a year ago at South by Southwest but, until now, we weren’t sure when we’d get to see it. Directed by Sebastian Gutierrez, who wrote Snakes on a Plane, it stars Carla Gugino as a pregnant ex-porn star turned sex education teacher who gets pushed back into things when an old friend, played by Marley Shelton, approaches her with a proposition. The film made Peter’s list of Best Movies of 2010 You’ve Never Heard of and now, we have a release date and full trailer for the film. Elextra Luxx, which also stars Timothy Olyphant, Adrianne Palicki, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Malin Akerman, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and others will be released March 11. Check out the trailer and official plot description after the jump. Read More »

As MGM has come out of bankruptcy and inched closer to being a real working studio once more, we’ve heard a lot about the potential for The Hobbit and a new James Bond film. We haven’t heard much at all, however, about the completed remake of Red Dawn, which has been sitting on the shelf for six months. So enjoy this cast photo (which is likely a costume test, and definitely not a still frame) showing the new Wolverines, among whom is Chris Hemsworth (Thor).
