Patty Jenkins has closed a deal to direct the sequel to the summer hit “Wonder Woman.”
Gal Gadot has already signed on to return in the title role. 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.
“Wonder Woman” has been a megahit for the studio, grossing $409 million at the domestic box office and $813 million worldwide. The film is the fourth installment in the studio’s DC Extended Universe, which launched with 2013’s “Man of Steel” with an opening weekend of $116.6 million, followed by last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” with $166 million, and “Suicide Squad” with $133.6 million. “Wonder Woman” — made on a $150 million budget — is critically acclaimed, with a 92% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Besides the “Wonder Woman” sequel, Jenkins is also developing a TNT TV series with her “Wonder Woman” star Chris Pine, inspired by the autobiography of Fauna Hodel. She is repped by CAA and Anonymous Content.
Other people and Cartoon Network themselves don’t seem to understand WHY people hate Teen Titans Go
If you bring up TTG and your dislike of it, you’re either greeted with people who agree with you, or people who say ‘You’re living in the past’ or ‘It’s a KIDS show get over it’ or ‘This is different, it’s not meant to be taken seriously’
This is what people and Cartoon Network themselves fail to understand: We get that and pretty much fully accept this is not OUR Teen TItans
It’s not that we’re opposed to the idea of a comedic reboot of something we love at all, I mean it’s worked amazingly in the past! Sonic is really benefiting from it with the new cartoon series, and even something as serious as BATMAN turned into Batman Brave and the Bold, and a lot of people love that series!!
So it’s not the fact that they turned Teen Titans into a comedy: It’s the fact that they did it wrong on so many levels, and the fact that the show runners and the network itself act like literal children when it comes to criticism.
Zoe Robins: The past year has been utterly overwhelming. You have
welcomed us into the Ranger Family with open arms. We have received
hundreds of messages of love and support, with many of you never seeing
any of our previous work. Ya’ll are crazy! We seriously have the best
fans in the world. Thank you.
For a lot of you this is much more than just a TV show. We get that. The
world is in a strange place especially in this moment in history, and I
couldn’t be more proud to be female, black and the White Ranger. The
first of it’s kind.
The diversity within our group
allows children everywhere to see themselves reflected on screen. None
of us can deny how influential this can be. I am humbled to be a part of
a show that recognises the importance of this. It’s an honour to
represent for you, your friends, children, cousins, nieces and nephews
etc. Most importantly for me- my son. I can’t tell you what that means
I’m so proud to have had the opportunity to
inspire some child somewhere, and I hope we are able to ignite a little
fire in some of you.
