    [FILM] Red Sonja Adaptation to Star Hannah John-Kamen

    TIL: There's a Red Sonja film in the works.
    Hannah John-Kamen has been chosen to star as the She Devil with a Sword: Take my money now!

    Best Red Sonja writer Gail Simone sums it up:
    So, she steals every movie she’s in.
    And now she’s our RED SONJA and I could not be more thrilled!
    Hyrkanian salute, Hannah!
    I am so happy!

    Variety reports

    “Red Sonja” has found its star.

    Hannah John-Kamen, best known as the villain Ghost in “Ant-Man and the Wasp,” will wield the sword of the comic book fantasy hero in Millennium Films’ long-gestating feature adaptation. Joey Soloway (“Transparent”) is directing the film, from a script by Soloway and Tasha Huo (a writer on Netflix’s upcoming “Tomb Raider” TV series).

    “Hannah is a very talented actress who we’ve been following for years and she is Red Sonja,” Soloway said in a statement. “Her range, sensibilities and strength are all qualities we have been looking for and we couldn’t be more excited to embark on this journey together.”

    She doesn't look like she should be a red Sonja. I can imagine they will just make a cheesy fantasy movie of it.

    The question I have is, will it have Jason Mamoa as Lord "Totally not Conan, super honest guys." Kalidor?

    How big are her boobs? If this is another actress that with regular or small ones, then maybe we should do the next conan with a beer belly n no muscles?

    Talent isn't required. it's a sword n sorcery barbarians movie...just look at arnie in the conan movies...half the dialogue is "aaauauahhgghh gghahhouoooo oohhhaaaggghh" and punching camels n biting off heads of vultures

    I like her but to point out the elphant in the room, she is a bit small for the role.

    How ? She clearly has the body for it and did quite a lot of action roles.



    Give here the famous bikini armor and red hair, I can clearly see the She-Devil.
    I don't have big hopes for the movie tho. Will most likely end like the last Conan at best. But at least the actress choice really don't rebuke me.

    No. She doesn't have the figure...at all. (A push up bra isn't going to work)

    Muscle tone should be important.

    That is great casting. Wow, hope the casting director gets a nice bonus if this does well. Brilliant casting.

    That redhead lady on the Wanda vision show would be a better choice. The one who played the scarlet witch with the red hair would look more like red sonja. If she was not too old for is, Christina Hendricks would make a great red sonja.

    You know who would make a good red sonja is Amouranth the twitch streamer heh heh.

    Pretty sure it'll be a comedy. It might not be billed as such...but some of us will laugh.

    I've liked her in everything I've seen her in. Hopefully it works well.

    I'm glad we are moving away from having to look like the characters we want to portray, my 58 year old fat balding asian uncle is looking for a role and I hear Thor needs a new actor in the Marvel universe-

    Let me warn this thread immediately: This thread will not devolve into moaning about casting in an industry which literally pays millions of dollars to make people look nothing like they are. If y'all continue to derail the thread based on made up bullshit, and headcanon, and the disproportional standards of comic illustrators, this thread will be closed, and we can try again closer to the movie actually coming out. Nobody will perfectly look like your vision of any particular casting.

    Hope she hits the gym and bulk up a little bit, doesn't look very melee fighterish atm, also needs a little Tom Cruise movie magic so she won't look so small.

    Criticism of the choice of actor/actress based upon the reasons why the character being portrayed was popular to begin with should be fair game.
    Red Sonja became the inspired meme for "chicks in chainmail." Were Christina Hendricks younger and toned she'd fit the role.
