Wonder Woman Movie Loses Its Director

Wonder Woman’s first solo live-action movie, has hit one more snag. Variety reported that Michelle Maclaren, set to direct the film, has parted ways with Warner Bros. over creative differences.

In a statement from the studio, “Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct ‘Wonder Woman’ together.”

Canadian director Maclaren has made a reputation for herself working in television. She has worked on shows including “The X-Files,” “Breaking Bad,” and “The Walking Dead.” This would have been the filmmaker’s first major production.

The movie “Wonder Woman,” is scheduled for June 23rd, 2017. It is unknown if this news affects the release date. The project is still in pre-production, with actress Gal Gadot (The Fast and The Furious franchise) still cast as the titular amazon, and Jason Fuchs (“Pan”) penning the script. No information is officially available on the upcoming plot.

The news comes with the timing of the studio announcing a casting-call for the male role, Steve Trevor.
