“In your satin tights, fightin’ for your rights, and the ol’ red, white and blue…..”
David E. Kelley is developing a modern-day reboot of Wonder Woman.
The classic DC comic book heroine was famously played by Lynda Carter in the series that ran from 1975-79.
But there have been numerous plans to revisit the character on both the small and big screens.
Actresses ranging from Angelina Jolie to Beyonce Knowles to Megan Fox have thrown their hat in the ring for the starring role at one time or another.
In 2005, Warner Bros. announced Joss Whedon would write and direct the film adaptation. But Whedon said he never ended up being able to finish the draft, and said “They just didn’t like my take.”
Kelley’s name, best associated with such shows as Boston Legal, Ally McBeal and The Practice, gives this an interesting new turn.
Time to play that camp theme tune again….
