Hannah John-Kamen has been revealed as the titular lead in the upcoming Red Sonja movie based on the Dynamite Comics line.
The character, of course, was originally created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith for Marvel’s original 1970s run of Conan the Barbarian, taking inspiration from several Robert E Howard characters.
Hannah John-Kamen already has great geek cred with key roles in Brave New World, Ant-Man and The Wasp, Killjoys, Game of Thrones, Ready Player One, and the forthcoming Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City on her CV.
The new Red Sonja film is being made by Millennium, written by Joey Soloway and Tasha Huo. Soloway is also on board to direct.
