"Pan" Writer Reportedly in Talks for "Wonder Woman" Screenplay

Jason Fuchs, writer of the upcoming film "Pan," is reportedly in negotiations with Warner Bros. to write the "Wonder Woman" screenplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Wonder Woman" -- the long-awaited first solo feature starring the iconic DC Comics superhero -- will be directed by Michelle MacLaren and star Gal Gadot, who will debut as Wonder Woman in the Zack Snyder-directed "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," scheduled for release on March 25, 2016. That film will mark Wonder Woman's first live-action feature film appearance in the character's nearly 75-year history.

Fuchs' "Pan," scheduled for release in July 2015 and also at Warner Bros., is a new take on the Peter Pan mythology, featuring Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard. Fuchs, 28, also has a background as an actor and his other writing credits including "Ice Age: Continental Drift" and Nickelodeon musical "Rags."

"Wonder Woman" is expected for release on June 23, 2017.
