LOS ANGELES, Dec. 20 (UPI) -- The mastermind of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" has reportedly been tapped to develop "Wonder Woman" for the big screen, TV Guide Online reports.

Warner Bros. is close to signing Joss Whedon to write and direct the long-planned adventure film.

The deal -- which is reportedly nearly signed -- comes only two months after Whedon announced he was leaving the TV biz to focus on the silver screen.

His next effort, he said, is a film based on the Firefly TV series called "Serenity."

Meanwhile, there's no word who will play "Wonder Woman," the role created by Lynda Carter on TV.
