By CAITLIN ALBERS
The news of a "Red Sonja" reboot came in 2017, primarily attributed to the massive success of "Wonder Woman," as audiences proved they'd show up for female superheroes. The movie has had significant speed bumps on its way to filming after being greenlit five years ago, but it looks like the studio has finally found the perfect She-Devil with a Sword.
According to Deadline, Matilda Lutz will play Red Sonja in the upcoming film. Lutz is known for her work in "Rings," "Medici," and "Revenge," where critics applauded the actress's performance.
"Red Sonja" director M.J. Bassett has nothing but great things to say about the film's lead, commenting, "When I met Matilda Lutz, I knew she had all the magic I was looking for and could see the complexity and depth she would bring to Sonja." Millennium Media President Jeffrey Greenstein also backed up Lutz's casting, saying that Lutz and Bassett are "the perfect duo for Red Sonja.”
