‘Wonder Woman’ movie has no official green light yet, says director

Director Michelle MacLaren also says the film has no finished script or release date

The planned Wonder Woman movie has yet to be given an official green by Warner Bros Pictures, its director has revealed.

Michelle MacLaren, who was hired as its director at the end of last month (November), also revealed in an interview with Vulture that the film currently has no finished script or release date.

“I really, ­really, really can’t talk about this,” she said of the project. “I just picture a drone coming in over the hills and crashing through the glass and flying over here and putting duct tape over my mouth, you know?”

MacLaren is perhaps best known for directing 11 episodes of Breaking Bad, as well as serving as one of the show’s executive producers. She has also helmed several episodes of Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead, and will sit behind the camera for the second episode of Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul.

She signed on last month to develop as well as direct the Wonder Woman movie – and is said to be helping to “lasso together” its script. The Wonder Woman movie has been in the works for close to two decades, with several stops and starts over the years, and Joss Whedon attached to direct at one point. The film is set to star Gal Gadot (pictured), who will make her debut as Wonder Woman in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice.

Wonder Woman, a warrior princess of the Amazons, made her DC Comics debut in 1941 and was famously played by Lynda Carter, a former Miss World USA, in a popular US TV series that ran from 1975 to 1979.
