Lynda Carter will be forever remembered for her four years on American prime time television as Amazonian goddess turned defender of freedom known as “Wonder Woman”. The half Native American/Hispanic actress with her tall buxom frame would be the perfect fit to play the character that first appeared in DC comics in the 1940s’. It would have stood to figure that the presence of the former Miss World-USA 1973, Carter, herself would have equaled television gold. Several factors including a network change and a change in local, time, and philosophy ultimately would work against the series. Oddly enough it was a mid-season replacement on rival NBC called “Diff’rent Strokes, which starred Gary Coleman, that forced the shows network, CBS, to rethink and re-shuffle their schedule. Wonder Woman and its star Lynda Carter ended being the odd ones out. Although the network had plans to bring the show back, Carter soon would star in a very popular Las Vegas club act and record her first album. Great reviews turned the stars attention away from acting and towards a singing career that unfortunately never reached the popularity it had initially promised. Regardless the show was left for dead.

The film will be shot in Portland, Oregon, with a local cast and crew.
Combining elements of Gothic horror, film noir and science fiction, The Brain That Wouldn't Die is a charming, if not delightfully flawed, entry from director Joseph Green and producer Rex Carlton. Filmed in 1959 and released in '62, “Brain” follows the misadventures of Dr. Bill Cortner (Jason Evers), a brilliant surgeon who revives the head of his recently decapitated fiancee, Jan Compton (Virginia …
