Warner Bros reportedly wants a woman to helm Wonder Woman’s first feature film
It’s been almost two weeks since Warner Bros announced that Wonder Woman – the soon-to-be Dawn of Justice version, specifically – is finally getting her own movie. More recently, we learned what her new origin may be.
We still don’t know who is going to direct the feature, though. But according to recent reports the list of candidates can be narrowed somewhat dramatically: Warner Bros wants a female director.
The roster of names being “looked at” by the studio is a who’s-who of noteworthy modern women directors: Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty,) Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight, Red Riding Hood) and Karyn Kusama (Jennifer’s Body,Aeon Flux) WB is also supposedly looking at Mimi Leder, TV directors Michelle McLaren and Tricia Block and Broadway-to-Hollywood transplant Julie Taymor.
It is still unclear what the film’s story will be, or who will write it. Gal Gadot is playing the title character, who will have previously appeared in Batman V Superman and Justice League before her solo feature hits.
