Nicolas Winding Refn wants to do a Batgirl movie

Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive, Only God Forgives) has been vocal about wanting to do a superhero film and now it seems as though Batgirl might be his target.

Refn told Business Insider that he wants to adapt someone who hasn’t been approached in the 21st century.

“What ones are left? You know the one I want to do? I want to make Batgirl. Let’s get Warner working on it… I would love to make one [a superhero film], it would probably be great fun. I just don’t know when it’s going to happen. I very much enjoy my freedom creatively, but I also would love to make one of those big Hollywood films that costs a lot of money and has a lot of people running around with cell phones and all that insanity.”

Batgirl is expected to join the current slate of heroes in DC’s cinematic universe but we’ll have to wait to see in what capacity and who’s involved.
