Wonder Woman Reboot Shelved
As reported by Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva, David E. Kelley’s contemporary take on the iconic franchise has been shelved after all five broadcast networks passed on his script.
Last month, Kelley — best known for law shows like Ally McBeal, The Practice and Boston Legal — acknowledged to Zap2it that, “It’s a very, very different genre for me, a very tricky beast. I won’t know whether I’ve cracked it or not until I’ve finished it, but it’s going… If I can’t, I don’t want to delude Warner Bros. or anybody else that I should be doing it. The way I’ve always worked has been to write a script and discover, in the process of the writing, if it’s a fertile and creative place where I want to live. If I feel I can make the characters my own and it’s a world rich enough for me to revisit, that’s a good sign to me that it’s a series worth doing.”
