Nicolas Winding Refn

Every once and a while, an up-and-coming indie filmmaker will make such a splash on the indie circuit, that he has no choice but to bring his talents to Hollywood.  Look at people like Christopher Nolan, who after films such as MEMENTO, was launched straight into the arms of the Dark Knight.  You can maybe add Nicolas Winding Refn to that list.

The filmmaker told BBC (via /Film) that: “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.”

While the idea of Winding Refn hopping on a Wonder Woman film may seem like complete insanity, his sense of style and aesthetic would be pitch perfect for a superhero film.  Wonder Woman isn’t my first choice, as I’ve said from the outset that he should do Batman when Nolan is through, but I can’t think of a better filmmaker to jump on the superhero bandwagon than Winding Refn.  He’s a massively gifted filmmaker, so the guy could do a Barbie film and I would be stoked.  Let’s just hope Megan Fox stays the hell away from this thing.
