“Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct ‘Wonder Woman’ together,” the studio said in a statement.
Gal Gadot is still attached to star, and Jason Fuchs is on board to pen the script.
The studio was in the middle of pre-production, trying to lock down other roles for the film. Where this news leaves the production is currently unknown. The film was set to be released on June 23, 2017.
Sources tell Variety that test offers were set to go out to four actors for one of the male leads films on Monday. It had been rumored that the role Scott Eastwood had nabbed for “Suicide Squad” was Steve Trevor, the love interest of Wonder Woman, but sources now say that is not true and that the four actors testing would be for the role of Trevor.
“Wonder Woman” would be the first major film job for MacLaren following her work on television shows such as “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones.” She is repped by ICM Partners.
