‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s’ creator Joss Whedon has pulled himself out of directing the long-awaited feature film ‘Wonder Woman’.

Whedon claims he’s reason for pulling out was that he had a take on the film that nobody liked, saying that he and the film’s producer Joel Silver “just say different movies.” 

The writer and director added to the statement saying, “At the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that’s never gonna work.”.

Whedon recently broke the disappointing news to his loyal fanbase over at Whedonesque: “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.”

‘Wonder Woman’ was originally created by DC Comics, before it was adapted into a hit US TV show in the 1970s, starring Lynda Carter.

Whedon had been linked to the film project since March 2005. In a post on the Whedonesque website he stated: “Everyone knows how long I was taking and what a struggle the script was.”

He continued: “Though I felt good about what I was coming up with, it was never gonna be a simple slam-dunk.”

Whedon denied ever having a specific actress in mind to star as the the female heroine – or as Joss described ‘the most iconic heroine of our time’.

“I never had an actress picked out, or even a consistent front-runner,” he said.

Whedon revealed that after taking this project off of his role he would now focus further on ‘Goners’  – a thriller that he is currently writing and directing for Universal Pictures.
