LATEST: Kate Beckinsale has reportedly joined the race to play Wonder Woman in Buffy The Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon's upcoming comic book movie. The British actress is in negotiations with Whedon, according to movie gossip website Insiders claim Whedon is "very happy" with Beckinsale and confirmed last week (ends31MAR06) that production on his highly anticipated movie adaptation of the popular comic book series will begin filming in early September (06). Buffy stars Sarah Michelle Gellar and Charisma Carpenter, and teen queen Lindsay Lohan have been linked to the coveted role - which was played on TV by Lynda Carter. Former hot favourite Carpenter even remarked she was putting off having a second baby in the hope of landing the dream role. She recently told a reporter, "I'd like to (have another baby) eventually, but I want Wonder Woman right now. "I'm not holding my breath, but I'm crossing my fingers and toes and praying."
