Whedon to Write & Direct Wonder Woman?
Source: TV Guide
December 20, 2004

TV Guide is reporting that "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel," and "Firefly" creator Joss Whedon may write and direct Wonder Woman for Warner Bros.:

Joss Whedon is staking his claim to another female superhero. Warner Bros. is on the verge of lassoing the Buffy the Vampire Slayer mastermind to write and direct the studio's long-gestating Wonder Woman feature film, TV Guide Online has learned. The almost-done deal comes just two months after Whedon announced that he was getting out of the TV biz to focus on making movies, beginning with his forthcoming Firefly flick, Serenity.

Stay tuned for more on this as it comes in.

BUFFY STARS BATTLE OVER WONDER WOMAN ROLE


Ex-BUFFY stars SARAH MICHELLE GELLAR and CHARISMA CARPENTER are allegedly competing for the lead role in forthcoming superhero movie WONDER WOMAN.
The actresses - who played BUFFY SUMMERS and CORDELIA CHASE in the hit TV series - are battling for the iconic role after their former boss, JOSS WHEDON, agreed to direct the movie remake of the 70s television show, reports British newspaper the DAILY RECORD.
An insider says, "Joss has told the studio that Sarah is his first choice followed by Charisma. Sarah expressed an interest, but the producers are more interested in Charisma because she is less well known."

The Latest on Xmen 3...




X3 Things You Didn't Know

EXCLUSIVE: XMF has been provided with a little info about the X-MEN franchise from a 20th Century Fox representative directly. Please note that portions of this message had to be edited for posting on the site. One section below (see *) is rumored, but not to be taken as official news. Sorry folks, we have nothing on the X3 director/ plot, so await official announcements regarding that.

1). There have been rumors amongst the fandom that WOLVERINE may be filmed before X3. FALSE! Finishing the X-MEN trilogy is the top priority of 20th Century Fox, but spin-off films are being developed at the same time. As most know, WOLVERINE and MAGNETO are also in early development.
*Rumblings at the Studio: There are heavy rumors that both MYSTIQUE and possibly even STORM are next in line for development, but please consider those just as rumors for now, and not as official word.

2). By the producers and studio request, the weather controlling mutant known as Storm (Ororo Munroe) is currently being included in the X3 film screenplay on a provisional basis. The role is being written with the idea that it can easily be switched out for another character under the circumstances that actress, Halle Berry cannot return. Should the actress return, the role will likely be expanded to that equal of the other main cast members, in future drafts of the screenplay. It is also possible that the role could possibly remain small for a cameo appearance. Or could the role be recast? This is still being worked out, and won't conjeal until main cast members are asked to return.

3). The studio is set on getting X3 out for a 2006 release. Even though Avi Arad or Marvel Enterprises has listed a May release date, the month of May has been put in question, so changes in release date are a strong possibility. It all depends on the director and shooting locations. A Winter 2006 release is not even being thought about, so nix that idea.

OMG, X3... I can't wait. I really hope Halle Berry decides to join on. It just won't be the same without Storm.
Markboywondermark on December 23rd, 2004 12:02 am (UTC)
I think she will, Prad! I think this is all contract negotiation stuff...either for more $$ or more screen time!
Mariaweirdpinay on December 23rd, 2004 12:44 am (UTC)
OMG, that's an awesome Batman poster!!! can't hardly wait.

As for wonderwoman, I would love Charisma to play it. I think Sarah's a little too skinny.

X-3 OMG! *screams* I've been waiting for this movie F-O-R-E-V-E-R.
*crosses fingers for Storm*

I think Storm will come through! I think this is all negotiation stuff!

Charisma Carpenter would be a much better choice to play Wonder Woman than Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Another year and a half until X3?! Ack!

That Batman trailer is awesome!

If Jennifer Gardner hadn't played Elektra, I would have liked her for the role!

Yeah...LOVED the trailer!
A.M.ultimategirl on December 23rd, 2004 01:49 am (UTC)
You know who else would make a good Wonder Woman? Claudia Christian (played Susan Ivanova on Babylon 5); I think she would be great!

WONDER CHICOwonder_chico on December 23rd, 2004 03:26 am (UTC)
Thanks sweety! This is big turn of events. First they said Kalogridis finished the script and now they have someone new to write and direct! WB is driving me crazy! Now, over my dead body they put Sarah Michelle-Gellar as Wonder Woman. She is totally wrong for the part. If Sandra Bullock was wrong, Sarah is worst! GOD, will my nightmares ever end?!!!!

Now Charisma is a good option. Actually a very good one. But my actress of choice for now is Kate Beckinsale (from Van Helsing) I think she would be perfect. I do sincerely hope this Joss Whedon follows the line Kalogridis wanted to follow and stay true to the comic. If not, I would personally kill him myself!
I really don't know his work, because I never liked Buffy. But I know it was a very well done show. If he follows that line of production I can be a little more calmer and still be hopeful and full of faith about the script and the actress they choose! PLEASE GOD! Do'n't let it be Sarah! PLEASE!!!!

Jorge.
Markboywondermark on December 23rd, 2004 03:41 am (UTC)
I think Kate would be awesome! Sarah is NOT WW...they have to know that! Honestly, I'm not sure I like Charisma in the role either!
WONDER CHICOwonder_chico on December 23rd, 2004 04:54 am (UTC)
You don't like Charisma as a choice? I mean I am not totally thrilled with her being a choice either. But she is a way much better choice than Sarah! I agree with you Sarah is not Wonder Woman. Glad you like Kate as an option. When I saw her in Van Helsing I gasped. And my friend Carlos (who can read my mind) tells me "I know what you are thinking. She would be perfect!" Oh well, he knows me very well! LOL

SMG should not play Wonder Woman. I'm not sure I like Charisma Carpenter in the role either but i have no alternatives to the idea yet. I like the idea of Joss Whedon directing though!!!=)

OMG, Deb! I totally agree on all counts! :)
