'Wonder Woman' Director Patty Jenkins Signs On For Sequel

Patty Jenkins to return with Gal Gadot for Wonder Woman 2

After prolonged discussions with Warner Bros. over the course of several months after the record-breaking box office success of Wonder Woman, Jenkins has been confirmed to direct the Wonder Woman sequel.

The studio will pay a price for underestimating her - sources report that while Jenkins made about a million on the first movie, she will rake in between $7-9 million dollars for writing and directing Wonder Woman 2, and will also have a considerable cut of the backend.

In June, Variety reported that Jenkins was working with DC's Geoff Johns to develop a script for the sequel.

The eagerly-anticipated sequel is already proving a record-breaker, with Jenkins reportedly becoming the highest-paid female director of all time.

The first "Wonder Woman" film was Warner Bros. "The contract makes Patty Jenkins the highest paid female director in history". It looks like Jenkins was successful in her quest.

Jenkins came on to Wonder Woman as a replacement for director Michelle McLaren, who left the project over creative differences. Gal Gadot will also reprise the role of the Amazon Princess for a December 13th, 2019 release date. "We've got a cool idea for the second one".

Wonder Woman took the world by storm this past summer, netting $409 million at the box office domestically and $813 million worldwide.

A sequel was greenlit nearly immediately after Wonder Woman surprised Hollywood with its extraordinary reviews and opening weekend, with star Gal Gadot set to return.
