'Wonder Woman' Movie Is Searching for a Female Director

5 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

There has been much made about the lack of female-led superhero movies in the past couple of months, with DC Comics taking a giant leap forward by announcing a standalone Wonder Woman movie starring Gal Gadot. A new report indicates that Warner Bros. is set on hiring a female director to take on the project. But who will it be?

Zack Snyder will have the first crack at shaping and defining this big screen incarnation of Wonder Woman, a character that will debut in his upcoming superhero ensemble Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Its believed that the character will be loosely based on the New 52 version, with the Amazonian princess a goddess fathered by demigod Zeus. While Justice League Part 1 is also being released in 2017, its unclear which project will hit screens first that year.

22 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Elizabeth Banks will continue to bring her unique (see: slapsticky and funny as hell) brand of comedy to the small screen, and this time, it’s for her own show. Titled The Greater Good, ABC have picked up the series and are developing it into a single-camera comedy that the actress-director will executive produce and direct.

Banks will oversee production via her Brownstone Prods banner, along with 20th Century Fox TV, with scripting duties going to Arrested Development‘s Caroline Williams.
