WB Buys A(nother) "Wonder Woman" Screenplay

by | February 2, 2007 | Comments

Panic not, my dear Whedonites. Your beloved filmmaker is most definitely still attached to Warner Bros.’ "Wonder Woman" flick — but they just bought an additional screenplay … mainly to avoid confusion (and litigation) down the line.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, new screenwriters Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland are the lucky recipients of a paycheck, mainly because WB wanted to get their spec script off the market … plus the Warner execs also claim to like it a whole lot. The guys’ screenplay is a period-piece "Wonder Woman" adventure, whereas Whedon’s movie will take place in the modern era.

So if it seems a little silly for a studio to buy a screenplay they won’t actually be using, imagine how much more they’d have to dole out if a lawsuit arose just as "Wonder Woman" was nearing completion. I’m not exactly sure how a lawsuit would have arisen from this situation, but the WB lawyers are obviously a lot smarter than I am.

Regarding Joss Whedon‘s next baby … we got nothing. Expect some big casting news as soon as we hear it!
