Things are starting to shape up for Wonder Woman. Last week Michelle MacLaren landed the job of directing the film starring Gal Gadot as the title character. Her next task was to find a suitable writer to pen the script. And it looks like she may be close.
THR says that Pan screenwriter Jason Fuchs is now in talks to rewrite the script. Fuchs would work with MacLaren on the drafts. It’s unknown how drastic these rewrites will be considering we don’t know much about the film itself. We do know that Wonder Woman will make her big-screen debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. But as to what the film could be about, it could be a variety of things, and with the rumors swirling around the Internet, we won’t know until the studio makes an official announcement. More after the jump.
The rumor is that the film is a prequel of sorts, and will take place long before the events seen in Batman v Superman. According to the rumor, Wonder Woman is set in the 1920s, with half of the film would be spent on Paradise Island, while the other half is spent on our characters dealing with the arrival of man on the all-female island. Subsequent sequels would supposedly take place during the 1930s and 40s. But who knows if this is the direction the studio wants.
Fuchs’ other credits include Ice Age: Continental Drift. He is also working on the sequel to the Joe Wright-directed Pan.
Wonder Woman hits theaters in June 2017.
