It’s official everyone!!! Patty Jenkins has closed a deal to direct the sequel to the summer hit Wonder Woman.
The lead of the film, Gal Gadot, has already signed on to return in the title role, and the film is slated for release on Dec. 13, 2019.
Variety was first to report that Jenkins was already working on a script for the sequel with Geoff Johns, who oversees the DC film universe along with Jon Berg for Warner Bros. “The goal is to make another great ‘Wonder Woman’ film,” Johns said at the time.
While an exact number could not be unveiled, sources say the number is in the $8 million dollar range to write, direct, and produce, making her the highest paid female director of all time. A substantial backend of box office grosses is also included in the contract.
