WB lassos scribe for ‘Wonder’ pic

No start date set for Levens' script

As yet no start date has been set for the production, and it is uncertain whether it will be Silver’s next pic. Silver, whose WB/Village Roadshow pic “The Matrix: Reloaded” will be released Stateside on Thursday, is currently shooting “Gothika” under his Dark Castle banner. That pic, helmed by Mathieu Kassovitz, stars Halle Berry and Penelope Cruz.

“Wonder Woman” is being overseen at the studio by senior VP of production Courtney Valenti and veep of production Dan Lin and at Silver Pictures by Susan Levin.

Levens, repped by WMA, has worked for the past two seasons as a writer and co-producer on the WB network’s take on the Superman story, “Smallville.”

His adaptation of the psychological thriller “Found in the Street,” based on Patricia Highsmith’s novel, is in pre-production at John Malkovich’s production shingle Mr. Mudd.

Levens also penned “Guardians of Time,” a TV pilot for Joel Silver and the WB that’s being developed for the fall 2004 season.
