French website Premiere.fr caught up with Chris Pine at a promotional event for his upcoming movie The Finest Hours. Over the summer it was reported that Pine closed a deal to star with Gal Gadot in Wonder Woman as Steve Trevor. Pine confirmed the casting news and talked about how excited he is to work on a female superhero movie. Here’s a very rough translation via Google Translate, with a little clean up by me:
“I do not really know what I’m allowed to tell you”, told us Chris. “I’m super excited, of course, Gal Gadot is super talented, Patty Jenkins will direct, and we will shoot in film … What excites me most is to work in a movie with a superhero woman. With a woman in the lead role. I am teamed with this intelligent, beautiful and strong woman to defeat the villains and save humanity.”
Production on Wonder Woman should begin in London very soon. It was scheduled to start in the fall, and we’re right in the middle of it. The movie is scheduled for a June 23, 2017 release.
