The Wonder Woman movie has lost its director with Michelle MacLaren.

THR reports Michelle MacLaren and Warner Bros. have parted ways over "creative differences," though no specifics are known at this time as to the reason.

“Given creative differences, Warner Bros. and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together,” Warner Bros. said in a statement.

Wonder Woman was to mark MacLaren's directorial debut, with MacLaren known for being an experienced TV showrunner and director including having worked on episodes of Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Game Of Thrones and Better Call Saul.

It's also unknown if the change will affect the Wonder Woman release date, which is slated for 2017.

The report states MacLaren was hired in November after months of searching by Warner Bros. who was intentionally seeking a female director at the time. It's also said that multiple Wonder Woman scripts were being developed of which MacLaren had been heavily involved with shaping.

No mention was made of potential replacements.

Gal Gadot is still set to star as Wonder Woman and does have a role in Batman Vs. Superman out 2016.
