With the “Wonder Woman” solo movie so long in development, even before the whole current DCEU was in the works, trying to figure out who wrote the screenplay has been something of a guessing game.
Now though, Warner Bros. Pictures have issued a press release clearing up the accreditation and dropping a new synopsis for the Patty Jenkins-directed film which recently wrapped and is headed for an early 2017 release. It turns out that in the final analysis that it’s TV veteran Allan Heinberg (“Gilmore Girls,” “Scandal”) and DC creative chief Geoff Johns who penned the script based on story by Heinberg and Zack Snyder.
Jason Fuchs (“Pan”) had reportedly been linked to the script before, but it looks like his contributions were skipped. Here’s the new synopsis that came with the release:
“‘Wonder Woman’ hits movie theaters around the world next summer when Gal Gadot returns as the title character in the epic action adventure from director Patty Jenkins. Before she was Wonder Woman, she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained to be an unconquerable warrior.
Raised on a sheltered island paradise, when an American pilot crashes on their shores and tells of a massive conflict raging in the outside world, Diana leaves her home, convinced she can stop the threat. Fighting alongside man in a war to end all wars, Diana will discover her full powers…and her true destiny.”
“Wonder Woman” is scheduled for release on June 2nd 2017.
