No start date set for live-action feature adaptation

Laeta Kalogridis has signed on to pen a new version of the script for DC Comics’ “Wonder Woman,” for producer Joel Silver, Leonard Goldberg and Warner Bros. Pictures.

The live-action feature adaptation has no start date yet. Silver, whose WB/Village Roadshow pic “The Matrix Revolutions” will be released Stateside in November, recently shot “Gothika” under his Dark Castle banner. That pic, helmed by Mathieu Kassovitz, stars Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz.

On “Woman,” Kalogridis will write a story that goes back to the roots of the famed comicbooks but set in the present day.

Scribe, repped by Endeavor, is completing “Something Wicked This Way Comes” for Disney. Robert Zemeckis is attached to produce that pic through his production shingle ImageMovers. Pic, based on the classic Ray Bradbury novel, is being overseen at the studio by Buena Vista Motion Pictures Group prexy Nina Jacobson. Bradbury’s novel also served as the inspiration for the 1983 film of the same name starring Jason Robards and Jonathan Pryce.

Kalogridis’ other credits include a rewrite on “Scream 3” and the creation of the WB series “Birds of Prey.” She also sold her original pitch of “Alexander the Great” to director Oliver Stone, though the screenplay for the project currently shooting was penned by Stone and Christopher Kyle.

Her original script “Lucrezia,” a period drama about the infamous Borgia family, is set up at ImageMovers with Neil Jordan attached to direct.
