The live-action adaptation of 'Wonder Woman' has been reported to be in the early stages as Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures are eager to get started on the movie.
"Wonder Woman" could be back on track following a regime change at Silver Pictures. Reporting on the matter was IESB, which claimed sources in the Burbank studios confirmed that "there is quite a bit of movement" on the live-action film front with Rogue Pictures co-president Andrew Roma is in charge of production.
IESB also reported that Warner Bros. and Silver Pictures are in the early stages, but are eager to get started on the movie. The trade further noted that sources mentioned Warner Bros. are looking for new writers to take on the script for the projects and have been taking pitches in the last few weeks. So far, none of the reports has been confirmed or denied.
Though not much can be discussed on the future of the on-again off-again feature project, "Wonder Woman" is eyeing a 2011 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. Previously, singer/actress Beyonce Knowles has expressed her hope of becoming the first African-American Wonder Woman.
