Marston, however, didn't envisage her alone, owing the character to two very important women – both of whom he lived and had children with at the same time. Rebecca Hall (The Prestige) will star as his wife, Elizabeth Holloway Marston – who assisted William in constructing the lie detecting systolic blood pressure test – with Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) onboard as the pair's partner, Olive Byrne.
Professor Marston & The Wonder Women will be written and directed by Angela Robinson (True Blood), and will deal with the misogynist controversies of his creation Diana Prince, and the love triangle that threatened to ruin their reputations.
Luke Evans is currently starring in The Girl On The Train, Hall has another biopic, Christine, which was shown at the London Film Festival last month, and Heathcote will soon be seen in Fifty Shades Darker.
Production on the film is now underway.
