Are cameras finally ready to roll on Warner Bros.’ film about the lasso-twirling Amazon? Producer Joel Silver, the man behind the ”Matrix,” recently hired former ”Smallville” writer-producer Philip Levens as screenwriter No. 4 for the project, in development for at least four years. Levens is taking his cues from the ’70s TV show, equipping Diana Prince’s alter ego with bulletproof bracelets and a boomerang tiara. Sandra Bullock has been considered in recent years, but now producer Leonard Goldberg (”Charlie’s Angels”) says that he’ll cast an actress ”in her early to mid-20s.” (Rumor has it ex-Slayer Sarah Michelle Gellar is hot for the part.) Levens expects ”Wonder Woman” to have a director and star within three months. First, he’ll have to see if his script takes flight like WW’s invisible jet.
