The great cinematic mind that brought us the first tween dream Twilight movie has made the heroic leap to directing feminist fan fiction. According to a July 24 Deadline report, director Catherine Hardwicke has signed on to a lesbian Viking film called Heathen — an adaptation of a Vault Comics series of the same name. The story is a radical twist on Marvel’s Thor, rivaling Disney’s upcoming female Thor film.
The plot revolves around a Viking warrior named Aydis who is castigated by society for kissing another woman. Aydis promptly becomes “woke” … A self-proclaimed “heathen,” she declares a one-woman war against Odin and his oppressive patriarchy.
