El director y guionista Joss Whedon ha anunciado públicamente su renuncia a seguir trabajando en el esperado proyecto Wonder Woman, que hasta el momento preparaba para Warner Bros y Silver Pictures. Este es el comunicado íntegro que Whedon ha colgado en su blog.
“SATIN TIGHTS NO LONGER. Joss will not be fighting for our rights after all.
You (hopefully) heard it here first: I’m no longer slated to make Wonder Woman. What? But how? My chest… so tight! Okay, stay calm and I’ll explain as best I can. It’s pretty complicated, so bear with me. I had a take on the film that, well, nobody liked. Hey, not that complicated.
Let me stress first that everybody at the studio and Silver Pictures were cool and professional. We just saw different movies, and at the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that’s never gonna work. Non-sympatico. It happens all the time. I don’t think any of us expected it to this time, but it did. Everybody knows how long I was taking, what a struggle that script was, and though I felt good about what I was coming up with, it was never gonna be a simple slam-dunk. I like to think it rolled around the rim a little bit, but others may have differing views.
The worst thing that can happen in this scenario is that the studio just keeps hammering out changes and the writer falls into a horrible limbo of development. These guys had the clarity and grace to skip that part. So I’m a free man.
Well, sorta. There is that “Goners” movie I can finally finish polishing, and plenty of other things in the hopper I’ve wanted to pursue. I’m as relieved as I am disappointed, and both of those things lead to drink, so that’s a plus. Truly, you may be hearing some interesting things brewing in the coming months. But all potential jets therein will be visible.
But most importantly, I never have to answer THAT question again!!!! And you don’t have to link to every rumor site! Finally and forever: I never had an actress picked out, or even a consistant front-runner. I didn’t have time to waste on casting when I was so busy air-balling on the script. (No! Rim! There was rim!) That’s the greatest relief of all. I can do interviews again!
Thanks for your time. You are the people who make the world go ‘round. Or, no, science does that.”
Resumiendo, Whedon argumenta que Silver Pictures simplemente tenía otra película en mente diferente a la que él preparaba, y antes de sumirse en continuos cambios “sugeridos” por la productora, prefiere dejar el proyecto enteramente en sus manos. Whedon suaviza además su salida señalando la profesionalidad de la compañía de Joel Silver, y apunta a que ahora podrá centrarse en nuevos proyectos como su anunciada Goners. Este comunicado coincide con la noticia, dada días atrás, de que la producción había adquirido otro guión para la película.Pero.. con o sin Whedon ¿veremos a Wonder Woman en la gran pantalla?
