Maisie Williams In Talks For Supehero TV Series Similar To Kick-Ass
Maisie Williams, who stars as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, lets it be known that she is in talks to star in a superhero TV series of sorts.
Williams couldn't give specifics, but she does offer some clues.
"That's really interesting that you should say that, and there is not much I can talk about, but there has actually been a very exciting project and a very exciting group of people who have approached me about a new series. I can't say the title, I'm not saying anything about it, but it's in that sort of superhero vein, in the same vein as Kick-Ass where the superhero is not super and just has great intentions. That would not be happening yet, it would be happening in a few years, but that is something we have been in talks about for a little while, and I'm really, really, really excited about it."
"It was originally written as a graphic novel, and then the women who had the idea about it, one of her friends said, 'Listen, we should make this into either a movie or series.' I think they just kind of ran from there. It was originally going to be written as a graphic novel. It's not based on anything completely. It was kind of inspired just from walking around Comic-Con and seeing so many woman dressed as these sexualized female superheroes and just thinking, 'If I was a superhero, I would just want to wear a hoody and jeans,' and kind of taking that and making it into a superhero that isn't wearing spandex [laughs] and isn't a sexy catwoman or that sort of thing. Yeah, just something that I really, really enjoyed when she spoke to me about it."
