Cary Elwes is the latest name to sign on for NBC’s upcoming “Wonder Woman” television series, says a story at EW.
The series pilot is a reinvention of the iconic DC Comics title in which Wonder Woman a/k/a Diana Prince is a vigilante crime fighter in Los Angeles but also a successful corporate executive and a modern woman trying to balance all of the elements of her extraordinary life.
Elwes, who recently appeared in Saw: The Final Chapter and is still best known for his iconic performance in The Princess Bride, will play the CEO of Prince’s company, Themyscira Industries. He joins the previously announced Adrianne Palicki in the lead, Elizabeth Hurley as the pilot’s villain and supporting cast members Pedro Pascal and Tracie Thoms.
Kelley and Bill D’Elia (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice”) are the executive producers. The pilot was written by Kelley and will be directed by Jeffrey Reiner (NBC’s “The Event”). “Wonder Woman” is from David E Kelley Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
