Michelle MacLaren has signed on to develop and direct Wonder Woman, Warner Bros’ big-screen take on the iconic DC character. In addition, she will also work closely with the film's writers to put together a script for the movie.
Charles Roven, Zack Snyder and Deborah Snyder are among those producing the Wonder Woman movie, which is set for a 2017 release. Although, the character will debut in Zack Snyder's 2016 epic, Batman v Superman. She will be portrayed by Gal Gadot (Fast Five).
Apparently, MacLaren was chosen to take the helm on Wonder Woman due to her work on Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, although she is perhaps most associated with her directing and executive producing work on the much-loved AMC series Breaking Bad.
MacLaren’s signing caps off a director search that began in the summer. She became favorite to direct the project back in August, and she had several meetings with Warner Bros. The studio would widen their search come Fall. Sources close to the project say there was pressure from within to hire a woman for the job as the character has such a strong association with the notion of female empowerment.
