And like many programs on the CW (Smallville, The Carrie Diaries) and comic book characters (Spider-Man, X-Men, Batman,) the show will be a revised origin story of the woman with the magic lasso. But can you make the cut in casting?
According to Deadline Hollywood, the actress in mind for the starring role will be “in their early to mid-20s (and) are 5’8 or taller.“
Here’s the role’s breakdown. courtesy of Screenrant (And yes, the “codename” of Diana is Iris, so don’t be confused):
“She comes from a remote, secluded country and until now has spent most of her life as a soldier and a leader on the battlefield. Because of relentless brutality of her life at home, Iris looks at our world with absolute awe and astonishment. She’s delighted and just as often horrified by the aspects of everyday life that we take for granted: skyscrapers, traffic, ice cream. It’s all new and fascinating and sometimes slightly troubling to her. Iris is completely unschooled in our world, our culture, our customs. And she’s completely inexperienced at interpersonal relationships. She has no social filter, does not suffer fools, and tends to do and say exactly what’s on her mind at all times. She’s bluntly, refreshingly honest. She can tell when you’re lying to her. And she doesn’t have time or patience for politics or tact because she’s too busy trying to experience everything our world has to offer. There are too many sights to see and things to learn and people to care for. Hers is a true, noble, and generous heart. And she will fight and die for the people she loves. Iris is a fierce warrior with the innocent heart of a romantic and she will fight to the death to make the world safe for innocents and true romantics everywhere.”
Wait, are we SURE this isn’t just The Carrie Diaries? Because replace “secluded country” with Connecticut, and this could be the description of Candace Bushnell’s latest series. All post-tweens should apply.
