7 May – After much anticipation, it was revealed that the upcoming "Red Sonja" movie has found its titular star in the likes of Hannah John-Kamen.
The actress, who played the villainous Ava Starr/Ghost in "Ant-Man and the Wasp", will be wielding the sword in the upcoming Millenium movie, to be directed by Joey Soloway.
Said Solloway, "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."
Red Sonja started as a character for Marvel Comics' "Conan the Barbarian" in the 1970s, but ended up getting her own book due to the popularity of the character. News of a movie adaptation has been going around for a long time, before it was acquired by Millenium.
The upcoming movie will be co-written by Soloway and Tasha Huo - the latter who is also show running the animated Netflix series, "Tomb Raider".
On the other hand, John-Kamen has recently wrapped up production on "Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City".
