Wonder Woman Creator Biopic Starring Luke Evans, Bella Heathcote in Production

Luke Evans, Bella Heathcote and Rebecca Hall are starring in a biopic about the creator of Wonder Woman “Professor Marston and The Wonder Women,” which has started production.

Topple Productions and Boxspring Entertainment are the production companies and Angela Robinson is directing from her own script. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions has acquired worldwide rights on the project.

The story focuses on Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston, the inventor of the lie detector and creator of Wonder Woman, who defends his feminist superhero against charges of “sexual perversity.” Marston’s inspiration for Wonder Woman was his wife Elizabeth Marston and their lover Olive Byrne, two empowered women in the field of psychology.

Robinson has acted as consulting producer on “How To Get Away With Murder” as well as executive producing the final season of “True Blood.”

Amy Redford, Andrea Sperling and Terry Leonard are producing. “Transparent” creator Jill Soloway is executive producing as well as Boxspring Entertainment co-founder Clare Munn.

Sperling and Soloway recently formed Topple Productions. Their latest series is “I Love Dick,” starring Kevin Bacon and Kathryn Hahn.

Luke Evans will be next seen in “Girl On The Train” and recently wrapped production on Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast.” Hall was most recently seen in “The BFG” and will next be seen in “Christine.” Heathcote will be seen in “Fifty Shades Darker.”

WME Global packaged and represented the project.

Robinson is represented by WME. Evans is represented by WME and United Agents. Hall is represented at WME and  Julian Belfrage & Associates. Heathcote is represented by WME and  in Australia by Joanna Milosz and managed by Brian Medavoy. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood.
