PAN Writer Might Collaborate With Michelle MacLaren On WONDER WOMAN Script Rewrites

THR is reporting that Pan screenwriter Jason Fuchs is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to collaborate with director Michelle MacLaren (Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead) on the Wonder Woman script. Fuchs's background with fantasy writing might be a good fit considering the Wonder Woman mythology. Rumor has it that Diana will be the daughter of Zeus, which could increase the level of fantasy elements in the film. The studio is also expecting Pan to become it's own franchise.

There have been two Wonder Woman scripts previously, first one was by Joss Whedon when he was attached to direct. That was given the axe, which led to Whedon taking-on The Avengers. The more recent script was from Green Lantern and Arrow writer Marc Guggenheim, who also co-wrote one of the Flash scripts. I believe this was the script they've had in place for a while now, but with MacLaren on board they might likely want a page-on rewrite depending on her vision. Not to mention taking into consideration the events from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad. The rewrites might also involve the recent rumored setting being in the 1920-30s.
