Maggie Q Rumored to Lead La Femme Nikita Remake

by at . Comments

Maggie Q is the leading candidate to anchor The CW's upcoming remake of La Femme Nikita.

Initially made as a French film in 1990, the movie was Americanized by Bridget Fonda in 1993's Point of No Return. Peta Wilson then landed the title character in USA's 1997, short-lived series.

The CW pilot's will focus on Nikita being trained to replace the original version of the character. This gave creator Craig Silverstein an opportunity to break the trend of white women in the role, he said, as he wrote the lead as simply someone "beautiful and exotic."

Maggie Q was born in Hawaii. She rose to fame as a  Hong Kong action movie star before landing roles in Mission: Impossible III and Live Free or Die Hard.

I agree, nobody can top Peta Wilson and what is with Percy, goodness, that hardly sounds threatening. I watched the first episode and i am done.

I am thoroughly confident they will screw this up. Noir went down fine in the 80s and 90s, but I don't think present day audiences have the backbone for the kind of tragic storytelling that characterized the LFN series with Peta Wilson. I suspect this will be littered with dumb but safe humour, with each episode ending with their bows neatly tied. Maintain the shades of grey style, CW! Do the series' loyal fanbase proud or we'll come getchas!

Five seasons is hardly "short-lived."

See what i mean? Maggie Q has my sympathy... Peta's characterization of Nikita is there to stay,impossible to convince the fans to accept another. Its like asking the Pope to forsake the church!

BOOOOOOO. NEVER! BORING. So typical of CW. Peta killed that role because she wasn't a short whimpy little hussy. Now they're going to bring in that boring, scrawny chick? That's so WRONG. And no cheesy actor could replace Roy Dupuis.
