Warner Bros. landed a huge get when it nabbed heavily sought-after director Michelle MacLaren to helm its upcoming Wonder Woman movie. But like Wonder Woman's invisible jet, MacLaren's involvement in the film seems to have disappeared.
MacLaren has departed the project due to "creative differences" with studio Warner Bros., The Hollywood Reporter reports.
"Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together," Warner Bros. said in a statement.
MacLaren's hire by Warner Bros. was met with great fanfare, as securing a female director for a movie about arguably the most popular female superhero was seen as a positive step for a genre that has been dominated by male directors. Gender aside, MacLaren also drew excitement for Wonder Woman as she's been one of television's best directors in recent years, with Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, and Better Call Saul under her belt.
Wonder Woman's scheduled premiere date of 2017 isn't expected to change as a result of MacLaren's exit.
