Strickland-TD90    The latest report out of Hollywood seems to confirm that a movie of Wonder Woman is now in pre-production. Producer Joel Silver has brought in Matthew Jennison and Brent Strickland, Tau Delta '90, to bring "Wonder Woman” back to life, and both are  apparently making their debut writing for the screen. Strickland has some acting credits for films such as 2004's "Soul Plane" but nothing in the writing department.  
    There had been a Hollywood see-saw of whether "Wonder Woman" or "Justice League of America" would be made, and the balance has apparently tipped back into the favor of the woman wearing the bikini and carrying a lasso. According to Internet Movie Database, Jennison's only listed credit was as an assistant to Kevin Heffernan in the 2006 movie "Beerfest," while Strickland has some acting credits for films such as 2004's "Soul Plane," but nothing in the writing department. Despite their lack of previous credit, Warner Bros. was impressed with a World War II-based script for "Wonder Woman" the duo wrote, and has now commissioned them to take that skill and write an entirely new storyline and setting for the on-again, off-again film.
    Silver is reportedly considering including some origins of Wonder Woman, including a story involving Paradise Island. "Besides the great origin story, there's nothing from the comics that felt right 100 percent, no iconic canon story that must be told. Batman has it made -- he's got the greatest rogues gallery ever, he's got Gotham City. The Bat writes himself. With 'Wonder Woman,' you're writing from whole cloth, but trying to make it feel like you didn't. To make it feel like it's existed for 60 years, even though you're making it up as you go along."
    Silver has been pursuing a "Wonder Woman" film since 2001, going as far as floating potential stars like Catherine Zeta-Jones, Sandra Bullock and even Lucy Lawless. No release date is set, but it's likely that the film could not hit theaters until at least 2010.
