Wonder Woman film returns?
There's a story out today that suggests that a Wonder Woman live action film could be back in the works, and with a change of executives at Silver Pictures last year, the project of Wonder Woman is being spearheaded by the new head, Andrew Roma.
Those pesky "sources" are at it again saying that the latest people in charge are fighting for the film and hope to see it made. That may not be the only change on the project though.
With the new people come new ideas, and one of those new ideas appears to be getting rid of the previous Wonder Woman writers. For the story from IESB through MoviesOnline has the revelation that these "sources" are saying that Warner Bros. are looking for new writers.
Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland had pitched their World War II based version which was bought and replaced the Whedon script, however they were told to write it and modernise it. That they did, and now it looks like they're gone too.
I'm wondering what the studio want from this story, and I think the writers probably are too.
There's still that huge gaping void of who would play Wonder Woman, and we've been through names galore - I just thought I'd add this picture in because it's a little bit amusing too. I think there are tons of great choices out there, but first they need a script that really works, and that's going to be a big problem.
What I believe they need here is the Nolan treatment, and I'm not just saying that because he's successful with Batman, but because Wonder Woman is perhaps the campiest story and has the silliest baggage assigned to it. It's going to need a lot of work to distance itself from the television shows and really work.
