British actress Kate Beckinsale wants to play Wonder Woman in the upcoming movie adaptation of the classic 1970s TV series.

The Van Helsing beauty has been practising - she dressed up as the superheroine last year (04) for Hallowe'en - and she hopes BUFFY THE VAMPIRE Slayer creator Joss Whedon will cast her in the prestigious role.

She says, "I dressed up as her last Hallowe'en so it would be good to do it again."
