Warner Bros. Really Wants to Get Wonder Woman Right, Reportedly Having 6 Scripts Written

WonderWoman184Hughes2Last time we had news on the first live-action Wonder Woman film, Warner Bros. looked like they were close to hiring a writer. Now it seems they might be going overboard with that whole hiring thing. I guess she really is tricky after all.

Sigh. So there’s really not a whole lot to go on here at the moment. The rumor comes from producer/screenwriter Arash Amel (Grace of Monaco). He tweeted the following:

You may recall Warner was also putting writers to work on two different scripts for their Jason Momoa-starring Aquaman film. We have to agree with Amel here that this is not a great trend. Badass Digests’ Devin Faraci tweeted he’s heard they may merge the Wonder Woman scripts, which in my mind could make for a giant mess.

Amel’s other tweets seem to indicate he feels it would actually be illegal for Warner Bros. to do this but I don’t know enough about the Writer’s Guild to comment.

What do you think about this tactic?
