Apparently, Baz is having a harder time finding the right woman. Rebecca Hall played the role at a reading, but the director has some other actresses in mind as well.

Amanda gets our vote for the gal we can best see sinking her teeth into the iconic role, but since absolutely nobody asked us, here’s a list of five more actresses we’d like to see Baz consider for the part: More »
