‘Red Sonja’ Reportedly Still in the Works With Hannah John-Kamen

I'm Very Happy to Hear This One is Still in The Works

by Trey Hilburn III

It’s been about a years since we last heard rumblings concerning Hannah John-Kamen (Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City) taking on the role of Red Sonja. COVID and the world sucking sort of paused that whole report. There wasn’t any updates for a good while. In fact, we started to worry that this one was dead in the water. Rejoice, Y’all! While speaking to John-Kamen The Hollywood Reporter asked the magic question concerning Red Sonja and John-Kamen responded positively, assuring that the film is still in the works and she is still on board to play the lead character.

Millennium Films heading up Red Sonja with Joey Saloway (Transparent) directing and Gail Simone consulting.

“I can’t wait. I am super excited. I get to write it as well, which is really a dream come true. I know it feels different when you compare it to Transparent (series), but for me, it feels just really very much like it’s coming from the same place.” Saloway said.

Saloway went on to say, “All my work is really about humans searching for some divine feminine, asking these questions about God and looking for meaning. So, for me to transfer that into the world of Red Sonja felt incredibly natural, because Red Sonja is a very different kind of superhero. She’s not really typical.”

We wouldn’t have thought of the Transparent head to take on the brutal and gory swords and sorcery world of Red Sonja, but Saloway’s unique perspective on Sonja already sounds very captivating.
