Wonder Woman Coming To The Big Screen. Please, Maybe?
Over the past few years, there have been a zillion and 12 super hero movies. And so it’s shocked me that “Wonder Woman: The Movie” hasn’t happened yet. I mean, the comic was great and the ’70s TV show starring Lynda Carter was a camp classic. I loved watching her wrestle bad guys with her lasso of truth and bullet-deflecting bracelets. It seems like such a natural. Evidently, the movie has had a long, twisted path. Rumors of the flick began in 2001, when producer Joel Silver started working on a screenplay which Sandra Bullock was rumored to be attached to. Then in 2005, it was announced that “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” auteur Joss Whedon was taking over the project. But studio execs didn’t like the direction he was going, and he abandoned ship in 2007. The movie looked dead in the water. But today, the chairman and CEO of Warner Brothers told shareholders in a presentation that he was working hard to bring it to the screen. Holler! I just have two words on who should play Wonder Woman: Zooey. Deschanel. [MTV]
