Who should it be?

Just out of curiousity, who are some of the more accomplished female directors in Hollywood right now? I'm not saying that a WW movie needs a female director, but it'd be kinda neat to know if there some viable options outside of Penny Marshall.

I think Amy Heckerling(Clueless, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Look Who's Talking) is a good director but I don't know if she's the right person to make Wonder Woman.

I think the idea of a female director is good in theory but I'd rather see the right director, male or female.

What about the scion of Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola? They say directing runs in people's blood.

Kathryn Bigelow, who has directed two of my all-time favourite movies (Near Dark, Blue Steel). However, her vision may be a little too dark for Wonder Woman, and after the failure of K-19 she probably won't be given any high profile projects for awhile.

Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) should direct!

What about CHRIS COLUMBUS? He directed the first two HARRY POTTER movies and is producing the third one. He certainly seems to know how to mix magic, myth and modern life pretty well. I'm sure he'll eventually grow tired of the world of Hogwarts and want to try something else.

I dunno about the director, but also, what about the writer?
I hear the craptastic writer/producer behind the flop and comeplete piece of crap that was the WB Birds of Prey show has been given writing duties. WTF? I am convinced, now more than ever, that Warners is run by retarded monkies. Wait.. that's an insult to retarded monkeys everywhere.

I think Steve Trevor had a good suggestion. I like the idea of Peter Jackson directing Wonder Woman. I know his name is mentioned in every forum as a suggestion to direct a C2F, but something like Wonder Woman seems like it would be so natural for him. There's a sense of mythology and enchantment in the LOTR movies that I'd love to see in a WW film. And I feel Jackson's style has a broader appeal to adults as well as children.

I like your suggestion of Kathryn Bigelow. Besides the movies you named she also directed Strange Days and Point Break. She also worked on the defunct but VERY good TV show Karen Sisco (which featured an incredibly strong female lead character).

I really like the Katryn Bigelow idea, as that means James Cameron will pass an eye over proceedings too.
Chris Columbus would do a good job however-but how about someone like the director of Hero?
The film itself should look quite elegant and powerful and be able to tell a strong story-besides he can also deal with strong female characters, who often in hollywood become (as in charlies angels) jokes unto themselves.

How about the Farrelly Brothers?

The Farrelly Brothers suggestion is a good one. Now we can have Jack Black star as Diana! This is the role he was born to play, and makes much more sense than Green Lantern.

He's certainly got the, er, bosom for it...

Looks like Buffy the Vampire series creator Joss Whedon may get the director's chair for this film. Apparently producer Joel Silver likes his talent for working with action-oriented young women.
I still haven't heard word one about a script ... has anyone else?
