It sounds as if Oscar-award winning actress Cate Blanchett has been cast for Wonder Woman.
Actor and comedian Bryan Callen reveals on The Fighter and the Kid podcast that he auditioned for the role of a Scotsman for Wonder Woman and reveals both Chris Pine and Cate Blanchett were there (Pine has been cast as Steve Trevor).
Here’s the blurb:
I auditioned for Wonder Woman, which is shooting in England. I had to play a Scotsman. The director is a good friend of mine, and she didn’t even call me. I’ll tell you where she is, she is in London with Chris Pine and with a couple of other really famous actors, like Cate Blanchett…
Wonder Woman has been said to start filming this November, so it appears that the movie is currently in pre-production, as according to Callen, they are still auditioning actors for what sounds like minor roles.
Any ideas what role Cate Blanchett could be playing? An Amazon, perhaps? Maybe Wonder Woman’s mother? Hippolyta?
Blanchett won Oscars for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Blue Jasmine and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for The Aviator.
“Wonder Woman” hits in 2017 directed by Patty Jenkins starring Gal Gadot.
