Joss WhedonJoss Whedon - "Wonder Woman" Movie by Jennison & Strickland to be a WWII parody ?
Sunday 4 February 2007, by Webmaster
Warner Bros. Pictures and Silver Pictures have bought a spec script for the DC Comics character, Wonder Woman from newcomers Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland.
Jennison and Strickland are pretty unknown scenarists. They have worked on parody movies like "Beerfest" (Two brothers travel to Germany for Oktoberfest, only to stumble upon secret, centuries-old competition described as a "Fight Club" with beer games) and "Soul Plane" (Things get raucously funny aboard the maiden flight of a black-owned airline, thanks to some last-minute passenger additions).
It is understood that the Jennison-Strickland script is set against the backdrop of World War II. However, Joss Whedon was hired in 2005 to write the script and direct; his script is set in the present day.
The risk is very high that "Wonder Woman" Movie will not a be a serious comic movie like X-Men, but only a parody of the 70’s tv series...
