Warner Bros. Looks for Another "Wonder Woman" Script

February 1, 2007 (8:29 am) GMT
Warner Bros. Pictures is reported to be in the process of purchasing a spec script for "Wonder Woman" apart from that written by Joss Whedon.

Seemingly searching for alternatives in developing the long-gestating project of "", Warner Bros. Pictures and Silver Pictures are quietly in the process of buying a script for the flick from writing duo Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

The trade, however, pointed out that the purchase is actually a pre-emptive measure undertaken to take the spec script off the market in order to protect itself against the possibility that any similarities between the scripts could be fodder for future legal action.

Though so, the script is said to have impressed the executives at Silver Pictures despite its WWII background, which is opposed to producer Joel Silver's favor since he is more inclined to make a present-day story of the superhero as presented in director Joss Whedon's script.
