But, now, an alleged shortlist of actresses has been leaked, and honestly we're loving this lineup.
Paste Magazine uploaded the list, but they also note that neither the network or director has confirmed (or denied) this, so take it with a grain of salt.
Elle Fanning, Olivia Cooke, Bella Thorne, Katherine Langford, Margaret Qualley, Jane Levy, Emma Roberts, Haley Lu Richardson and Naomi Scott.
It is known that they are after a woman who isn't suuuper well known, since the success of Wonder Woman had a lot to do with Gal Gadot herself.
She has an ~innocent~ and naive vibe that boded well with the audience, so this film they are trying to replicate that.
Most of these actresses hold that stance, but as Aussies, we HAVE to support Katherine for this role, and since she's only known as Hannah Baker in 13 Reasons Why, she couldn't be more fresh!
