has hinted he will give original Wonder Woman
star Lynda Carter
a role in his movie version of the hit 1970s series. Whedon originally refused to consider Carter, 54, for a part in his project, but the mastermind appears to be changing his mind. Whedon says, "If it's right for the movie, it might happen."

husband James Brolin
will fill the role played by the late Richard Crenna
in the new Rambo
film. The actor has signed on to play vigilante John Rambo's military aide Corporal Keating, according to website SlyCentral.com. Crenna played a similar role, Colonel Trautman, in the first three Rambo films. Sylvester Stallone
will reprise his Rambo character in the movie.

and Colin Firth
are expected to star in a new TV adaptation of hard-hitting 1966 film Cathy Come Home
