Luke Evans, Rebecca Hall and Bella Heathcote join Wonder Woman creator biopic

Did you know the creator of Wonder Woman also created the lie detector? Well, he did, and you will be able to see how it all played out thanks to upcoming biopic, Professor Marston & The Wonder Women. Now news arrives via Deadline that Luke Evans (Dracula Untold) is set to play Harvard graduate Dr William Moulton Marston, the man who conjured up DC Comics Amazonian warrior princess in 1941.

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.
