With filming for 2017’s Wonder Woman underway, we still don’t know a whole lot about this cast or the plot of the film. However, The Hollywood Reporter is helping us out by revealing exclusively that Connie Nielsen (Gladiator, The Following Season 2) has been cast to play Hippoltya, mother of Wonder Woman aka Diana Prince and Queen of Themyscira. Connie’s casting officially rules out Robin Wright, who was rumored to have landed the part before filming started.
No further details have been released at this time.
Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman/Diana Prince) , Chris Pine (Steve Trevor), Robin Wright, and is directed by Patty Jenkins.
