Rumor has it that Michelle MacLaren is the frontrunner over at Warner Bros. to direct WONDER WOMAN. Apparently, the studio has been taking meetings with MacLaren, Jennifer Kent, and Lesli Linka Glatter and it sounds like MacLaren has been the favorite since she met with them in August. The action film would star Gal Gadot as the female superhero but plot details are being kept close to the vest, like most of the DC-based projects.
MacLaren is far and away best known for her work in TV, with credits including directing and co-executive producing The X-Files, directing and executive producing Breaking Bad, and for directing various episodes of The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and The Leftovers. Next up, MacLaren is directing the second episode of the Breaking Bad spin-off – Better Call Saul.
MacLaren is repped by ICM.
