Valhalla Rising Director Would Love To Make Wonder Woman
Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn says he feels Wonder Woman is a movie he was "born to make"!...
You may have seen some or all of Refn's pictures. He has directed the Pusher series and Bronson and his latest Viking bloodbath Valhalla Rising is making big waves at the moment. In a BBC interview, Refn spoke about how if he was to ever turn his attention to more studio friendly fare, there is only one movie for him...
After Valhalla Rising I thought the most surprising thing for me would be to go to Los Angeles and do a studio movie. Coming from a movie where I had complete control — I also own the movie — and had complete, kind of like, accessibility around me, and then going to Hollywood and doing a film within the studio, which is very much the opposite, I thought could be a very interesting experience for me.
I guess one of the aims I am having, but at the very early stage, I always wanted to do Wonder Woman as a feature film…Well, I would say that Wonder Woman is probably something that, to me, would be not just a satisfaction, but almost a [catharsis], and I was born to make it.
The WW stuff is around 6:56.
Refn's next movie is Drive with Ryan Gosling and brings him a bit closer to what would be considered mainstream. Of course this doesn't mean anything for now, its just wishful thinking. But several directors have recently revealed in interviews that they have certain CBM dream projects and then turned out to be(however loosely) linked to the films. Samuel Bayer said he woulkd love to direct The Boys and it turned out he was in contention, and more recently Splice director Vinceno Natali spoke about a Swamp Thing film. Now as Brent's article from yesterday reveled, that movie would appear to be a no go..but after Natali's interest it shows that he had some knowledge of Joel Silver's plans for it. Either way, having seen Bronson and the clips for Valhalla, Refn would certainly be an outside of the box choice! But perhaps thats exactly what a film like Wonder Woman needs.
Check out the trailer for Valhalla Rising and tell me what you think..
