Katharine Mcphee could be 'Wonder Woman'

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- Katharine McPhee, last season's "American Idol" runner-up, is reportedly being considered for a film version of "Wonder Woman."

The screenplay for the Joss Whedon film is expected to be finished by the end of 2006, the New York Post reported Wednesday.

McPhee's summer has already been full of surprises as she fractured her foot and dealt with bronchitis and laryngitis, which delayed her start on the "Idol" tour.

The "Idol" contestant joins a long list of actresses up for the role, including Sandra Bullock, Kate Beckinsale, Rebecca Romijn, Jessica Biel and Eliza Dushku.

Director Ron Howard's daughter, Bryce Howard, was a reported favorite for the role but she's since corrected those reports.

"I don't how I'd look in that suit," Howard said.
