Acting veterans Connie Britton and Oliver Platt have joined the cast of Angela Robinson’s “Professor Marston & The Wonder Woman”.
The film details the true story of Harvard psychologist and Wonder Woman creator Dr. William Moulton Marston (Luke Evans) and his fellow psychologist and inventor wife Elizabeth (Rebecca Hall). Together the couple had a polyamorous relationship with Olive Byrne (Bella Heathcoate), a former student of Marston’s and an academic in her own right.
Britton will play Josette Frank, an uncompromising psychologist who thought Marston to be anti-feminist and believed his ideas were dangerous. Platt plays M.C. Gaines, the hot-tempered editor at Sensation Comics who discovered Superman.
The project recently wrapped filming. Amy Redford, Andrea Sperling, and Terry Leonard are producing.
