Red Sonja Film Taps X-Men: First Class Screenwriter

Millennium Films has secured screenwriter Ashley Edward Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor) to script Red Sonja, according to Deadline.com.

The property — whose profile has been kept high through Dynamite Entertainment’s bestselling comics — was fast-tracked into development after the blockbuster performance of another box-office female warrior, Wonder Woman

“It’s an exciting opportunity to faithfully adapt the amazing Hyborean world Robert E. Howard created, and inject it with Sonja’s intelligence, ferocity, and fearless humanity,” Miller shared in a statement. “I want people to love Sonja the way I love her, and walk out of the theater understanding why she’s so popular and enduring. Sonja is an icon.”

Red Sonja first appeared in The Shadow of the Vulture, a 1934 novel by Conan the Barbarian creator Howard. In 1973, Red Sonja made her first comic book appearance between the pages of Conan the Barbarian #23 before getting her own series in 1975.
