Max Landis set to pitch Wonder Woman movie
Chronicle writer Max Landis might just have a way forward for Warner Bros and Wonder Woman...
Now this could be something. Screenwriter Max Landis has had no shortage of projects on the go following his breakthrough movie, Chronicle, although it's been revealed that his Chronicle 2 script has stalled at Fox (to the point where the studio appears to be pursuing the project, just not with Landis' idea for it).
Landis has also penned the script for Fox's Frankenstein project, that Paul McGuigan (Sherlock) is directing. But in a chat over at Reddit, he was asked which superhero characters he'd like to tackle. His answer? "Either a version of Green Lantern that played like ET meets Stand By Me", he suggested, "or Wonder Woman, using a pitch I intend to make to WB".
It's little secret that Warner Bros is keen to do something with Wonder Woman, but its last attempts to bring the character to television died a death. If anyone had an idea that could crack the Wonder Woman project for the studio, then we'd imagine that it'd be receptive. Maybe, just maybe, Landis is that man.
