“Ant-Man and the Wasp” villain Hannah John-Kamen has been cast as the title character in the new “Red Sonja” film at Millennium.
Joey Soloway is helming the long-gestating sword and sorcery feature from a script he co-wrote with Tasha Huo (Netflix’s animated “Tomb Raider” series).
Created by Marvel Comics’ Conan the Barbarian comic in the early 1970s, Sonja was a fiery and strong warrior and an amalgam of several characters from “Conan” creator Robert E. Howard.
Soloway says in a statement: “Hannah is a very talented actress who we’ve been following for years and she IS Red Sonja. 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.”
John-Kamen recently wrapped production on “Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City”.
