Joss WhedonJoss Whedon - "Wonder Woman" Movie - Updates compilation
Tuesday 20 June 2006, by Webmaster
Though I am sure there are fans that would love to hear Joss Whedon announce something spectacular for either Firefly or Serenity, the director’s (and the media’s) attention has been focused on the Wonder Woman adaptation.
Even though Whedon states that life is good and he couldn’t be happier, he is still stuck at the script stage for the superheroine.
Whedon Talks Wonder Woman
Wizard recently caught up to Joss Whedon and discussed multiple things with the director including comic books, Serenity and, briefly, Wonder Woman.
WHEDON: I am having enormous trouble with the [“Wonder Woman” movie] script. It’s going very well and I’m loving life, but because it’s only at script stage and there will be no discussion of casting before, I don’t really deal with that. No, it’s weird, I’m in my office and it’s just me.
WHEDON: It’s kept me busy for a long time. I’m finally finishing the second draft. I’m very happy with it, but wow! Wow, this one was like pulling teeth. It’s tough. I would watch “Batman Begins” and just grumble, just bitch and moan, because he’s got everything. He’s got so much of the work done for him. He’s got the best rogues’ gallery. He’s got the best origin story. Wonder Woman is a lot more to figure out. But it’s coming together. And if you would direct those actresses to my office, it’s in Santa Monica. It’s not hard to find.
For an extended period of time we had imagined Kate Beckinsale as the top pick for the part. Though the actress once wore the outfit on Halloween, she claims that the role is not for her.
Check out the entire interview with Joss Whedon over at Wizard.
Stay tuned for updates.
