Elizabeth Hurley Targets Wonder Woman

It looks like Adrianne Palicki‘s title heroine will be doing battle with Elizabeth Hurley in NBC’s Wonder Woman reboot.

Hurley tweeted this morning that she “will be playing the evil villain” in the David E. Kelley-scripted pilot.

A source close to the project, however, says there are still some outstanding visa issues that have to get sorted out before Hurley’s deal becomes official. Assuming everything works out, the British actress/model will be playing Veronica Cale, an evil scientist and businesswoman with a secret, nefarious plan. Although the role is technically being billed as a one-time guest stint, there’s every reason to believe it’ll evolve into a recurring gig should the show get picked up.
