It appears there was some unrest over at Warner Bros. production of Wonder Woman, with director Michelle MacLaren’s sudden departure over what is described as “creative differences” on Monday (rumors from sexism to MacLaren wanting to include a tiger sidekick), but it appears that the production won’t remain rudderless long – Monster director Patty Jenkins is taking over.
Wonder Woman has had a long history of troubles…NBC shot down a 2011 TV series after the pilot starring Adrianne Palicki was received poorly. The David E. Kelley script had even been rejected earlier that year by the network but was picked back up when Bob Greenblatt took over. And back in 2007, Joss Whedon tried to take the superhero to the big screen, but couldn’t agree with Warner Bros. or Joel Silver’s Silver Pictures over the setting of the script.
Gal Gadot is still attached to star as the Amazonian hero, and it is still scheduled for a 2017 release.
