Though she’s directed many acclaimed episodes of some of the biggest TV shows around, Michelle MacLaren suddenly appeared on many people’s radars when it was recently announced that she would direct the solo “Wonder Woman” movie at Warner Bros. Pictures.
In a new in-depth profile piece with Vulture, MacLaren offered some brief updates on how the film is going.
At last report “Pan” scribe Jason Fuchs was in negotiations to pen the script with MacLaren overseeing. The surprise is that despite all the talk of the movie on fan boards, project is still in very early stages – the film still has no script, no locked down release date, and in fact it hasn’t even been green lit yet:
“I ask the director for details about the DC Comics epic Wonder Woman, which she was picked to direct after a lengthy, widely publicized search. She stirs her tea. Then she warns that at the moment there is no script, no release date. There’s not even an official green light from the film’s releasing studio, Warner Bros. – and even if there were, nondisclosure agreements and her paranoia about jinxing things would keep her mum.
‘I really, really, really can’t talk about this. I just picture a drone coming in over the hills and crashing through the glass and flying over here and putting duct tape over my mouth, you know?'”
