Emerald Fennel was named as Film’s Writer
Award winning director and filmmaker Emerald Fennel was named as the movie’s writer. The promising filmmaker previously commented on Zatanna‘s dark genre and comic book influences as “It’s something that we’ve been working on for a while.” She further continued and said ,”You want to get the first bit right, which is the script, before you think of anything else.” She even said that she is a very big genre fan, and is much fascinated by magic, witches and comics, so its an exciting project for her.
Fennel added that there are a lot of things about Zatanna that could be really interesting. Since Zatanna has a dark past and roots, Fennel said, “And it’ll be an opportunity to make something really quite dark. And that appealed to me, to make something big and scary. I love that stuff.”
