The Chronicle writer is pitching a Wonder Woman movie

Max Landis, the writer behind Chronicle, wants to pen a Wonder Woman movie for Warner Bros. Why not? We liked Chronicle and this world desperately needs a new Wonder Woman. Sure, okay.


Now that Fox has passed on Landis' take for Chronicle 2, the writer has some free time for new projects. While talking to Reddit, Landis revealed two ideas he's been churning around for superhero movies. Here's his ideas:

“[I’d like to do] either a version of Green Lantern that played like ET meets Stand By Me using the goth/punk seen and Kyle Raynor, or Wonder-Woman, using a pitch that I intend to make to WB.”


Let's be real, neither of these ideas is anywhere close to happening. But we kind of like both pitch ideas, so why not throw some weight at it. Go forth and pitch! And maybe, just maybe, we'll get the Wonder Woman movie/show/webseries we deserve.

Is it just me, or does it make sense to have someone with A VAGINA take a swing at this property... Not saying a man can't write an awesome WW story (they've been doing it for years), but the serious sausage fest circling this project without so much as a drop of estrogen... come one. Might this be the problem you have getting a good script? Don't like 90% of male writers complain they don't know how to write for women?

I will reiterate my Wonder Woman plan for DC: Deborah Snyder and Emma Thomas to Executive Produce... Give them the budget and creative control... stay the hell out of their way. Hopefully one will direct, but I'm not sure if this is in their skill sets. These two have produced more comic book movies than any woman in existence, and they are "in the family" at DC and Warners, and have been privy to all the plans for the DCCU as long as anyone.
