Chris Pine is in negotiations for a role in Warner Bros. Wonder Woman movie.
Wonder Woman is due to be released in June of 2017.
Pine would play Steve Trevor, Diana Prince’s love interest. Prince (Wonder Woman) is being played by Gal Gadot.
Originally, Scott Eastwood was in the running for the part, but signed on for a guaranteed supporting part in Suicide Squad instead.
In the Wonder Woman comics, Trevor “was an intelligence officer in the United States Army during World War II whose plane crashed on Paradise Island, the isolated homeland of the Amazons. He was nursed back to health by the Amazon princess Diana, who fell in love with him and followed him when he returned to the outside world. There she became Wonder Woman (and also his co-worker, Diana Prince).”
Wonder Woman is written by Jason Fuchs, and will be directed by Patty Jenkins.
