While McG is linked to the director role, Beyonce Knowles sets eyes to be the first African-American superheroine in 'Wonder Woman'.
While many still speculate on who should play the titular character in "Wonder Woman", an interesting tidbit about possible movie director for the film comes forth. Sparking rumors on the subject, IESB has mentioned that Warner Bros. want "Terminator Salvation" helmer McG to direct the superheroine feature project.
Though bringing up the 40-year-old's name to the speculation plate, IESB noted that it is still unclear whether the film director has been signed or he is one of the potential candidates or even he is campaigning for the role. In addition, the studio have yet to send out any confirmation or denial regarding this rumor.
On the latest casting news, R 'n' B star Beyonce Knowles has spoken out about her hope of becoming the first African-American Wonder Woman to Los Angeles Times. "I want to do a superhero movie and what would be better than Wonder Woman? It would be great," she said in an interview posted on November 7. "And it would be a very bold choice. A black Wonder Woman would be a powerful thing. It's time for that, right?"
Though not much can be discussed on the future of the on-again off-again feature project, "Wonder Woman" is eyeing a 2009 release and will be produced by Joel Silver and Leonard Goldberg. Previously, writer/director Joss Whedon is attached to the project, but in early 2007, he suddenly gave up his position as both writer and director of the movie.
