Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has responded to an anonymous letter, from someone claiming to be a former Warner Bros employee, calling the film “another mess” for the studio.
In the letter to Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara, the writer explains how the studio made a series of missteps leading to 2014 layoffs, reported Aceshowbiz. The writer also has harsh words for Justice League director Zack Snyder, blaming him for the divided response to Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and claiming his work is costing people their jobs.
“Maybe ‘Wonder Woman’ wouldn’t be such a mess. Don’t try to hide behind the great trailer. People inside are already confirming it’s another mess. It is almost impressive how you keep rewarding the same producers and executives for making the same mistakes, over and over,” the letter reads.
Jenkins took to Twitter to give the replies in regard with the claims made in the letter. “Woah, just saw this press about WW having problems. Are they serious? This is some made up bs right here. Made up! Produce a source, anyone. “You can’t because it’s entirely false. Don’t believe the hype people. Someone’s trying to spread some serious misinfo,” she tweeted.
She said the film is not in trouble. “Let me reassure you…Zero about the movie we are making has been called a mess by anyone in the know. Fact. Real lasso of truth, time, will reveal that letter to be false soon enough. But lame something so transparent in its agenda gets traction,” Jenkins added.
The anonymous letter comes one week after the opening of Suicide Squad, which was disliked by critics but is earning well at the box office.
