One of the many films that recently made its premiere at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) was Farming. Kate Beckinsale, of Underworld fame, is one of the stars in the movie and, in an interview with Variety, she talks about Farming as well as the possibility she had to play Wonder Woman in the past.
Here is what Kate Beckinsale had to say about what motivated her to play the role she has in Farming:
“Addie wrote me this beautiful long letter asking me to play his foster mother. I was surprised because I don’t think many people would think of me to play a character like that off the bat, but I was honored to be asked. Addie was very candid about her and in the script we get a real sense of Ingrid’s incredibly heroic qualities, but also her unpleasant aspects. She’s not a villainess or a hero.”
Kate Beckinsale also discussed what the message of this film is:
“I don’t know if there is a message. It’s Addie’s life and his experience. He’s one of the most generous, calm, peaceful souls, and the fact that he went through all that and emerged from that poverty is just extraordinary.”
Clearly, despite the troubles of the DCEU, Gal Gadot has made the role of Wonder Woman her own but Kate Beckinsale had a chance to play the iconic superhero when Joel Silver was involved in its pre-production. This is what she had to say about the possibility of playing Wonder Woman:
“Yes, there was a period of time, a long time ago, when [producer] Joel Silver was involved with it. But it worked out beautifully. That was a wonderful film that Gal [Gadot] did.”
