Michelle MacLaren frontrunner to direct ‘Wonder Woman’

November 13th, 2014 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Last month we learned that Warner Bros. Pictures were on the hunt for a female director to helm the big screen adaptation of Wonder Woman and news has just surfaced as to who the frontrunner is.

Variety have reported that Michelle MacLaren is in negotiations with Warner Bros Pictures to direct the movie, which is set for a July 23rd, 2017 release, with Charles Roven producing and Gal Gadot reprising her role from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Zack Snyder is currently directing the Batman movie in which Gal Gadot will first appear as Wonder Woman. The release date for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is March 25th, 2016.

MacLaren has had some big TV gigs including directing episodes of Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and was also a director and producer on AMC’s hit drama Breaking Bad.

Katheryn Bigelow and Catherine Hardwicke were at one point attached to the project and Bigelow seemed like the most sensible of choices as she is a critically acclaimed director with a great repertoire of films on her CV. Hit the comments section to let us know what you think, peeps.
