It was recently confirmed that Breaking Bad‘s Michelle MacLaren is set to direct Warner Bros.’ Wonder Woman movie, which will star Gal Gadot. The film will be the last in the DC Cinematic Universe before Justice League Part One, and a movie adaptation of the iconic character had been in development hell for decades. Thankfully, it is now moving ahead for a June 23rd, 2017 release date. And now, it looks like it has a writer.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, screenwriter Jason Fuchs is in talks to pen the script for Wonder Woman. If a deal closes, he will work on the draft with MacLaren. Fuchs previously wrote Ice Age: Continental Drift and Warner Bros.’ July 2015 blockbuster, Pan. The studio must be impressed with what it’s seen of the latter so far to give the screenwriter a shot at tackling one of its most anticipated DC movies. Stay tuned for more news as we have it.
