Bumblebee Writer Takes Over Scripting Batgirl Movie
DC and Warner Bros.’ Batgirl movie has found a new writer in Christina Hodson.
THR reports Hodson, who penned the upcoming Transformers spin-off Bumblebee, will now be taking over scripting duties on the project. This comes two months after writer-director Joss Whedon exited the film because he couldn’t come with a story after reportedly spending a year trying.
“Batgirl is such an exciting project, and Warners/DC
such collaborative and supportive partners, that it took me months to realize I really didn’t have a story,” Whedon said at the time.
