Canadian director Michelle MacLaren has quit the 'Wonder Woman' movie because of "creative differences"

'Wonder Woman' filmmakers are on the lookout for a new director after Michelle MacLaren quit the project over "creative differences".

The Emmy-winning director, who's best known for helming episodes of 'Breaking Bad', 'Game of Thrones' and 'The Walking Dead', had been set to lead the eagerly-awaited Warner Bros film starring Israeli actress Gal Gadot, but has chosen to walk away over a disagreement.

In a statement, Warner Bros explained: "Given creative differences, Warner Bros and Michelle MacLaren have decided not to move forward with plans to develop and direct Wonder Woman together."

The studio hasn't offered an explanation of what the creative differences entail and there is no suggestion as to who will replace the Canadian director.

Meanwhile, Gal Gadot insisted recently she wasn't bothered by suggestions she didn't have a large enough bust to play the superhero.

The actress - who's set to appear in upcoming blockbuster 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' - said: "Well, they said that I was too skinny and my boobs were too small. I'm really lucky nothing in my life was instantaneous. When I was younger I would take criticism really hard. But now it mostly amuses me.

"The true Amazons had one boob so it wouldn't bother them in their archery. So it's not going to be like I'm a real Amazon. We always try to make everyone happy but we can't."
