'Wonder Woman' Director Patty Jenkins Signs On For Sequel

Posted September 12, 2017

Jenkins was only signed on to direct one "Wonder Woman" movie, which led to a tough negotiating process between her reps and the studio as the box-office tally for the movie continued to soar throughout the summer, giving her massive leverage in the talks.

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

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. What's more, there are also reports that she's due to earn a considerable backend from the film. "The contract makes Patty Jenkins the highest paid female director in history". Warner Bros.is probably kicking itself for not having locked both Jenkins and star Gal Gadot in for a series of films at the get-go; they'll be paying dearly for that mistake.

The film, which debuted in June, grossed more than $410 million domestically, according to Box Office Mojo. No surprise, then, that Warner Bros. was keen to repeat these tremendous achievements.

Proof that Gadot truly is a wonder woman.

"Patty and I are writing the treatment right now", he said.

The full blooper reel is included in the "Wonder Woman" DVD extras, which comes out on Tuesday, Sept. 19.

The film is set to explore the heroism of the Amazon goddess against a global backdrop, as she plunges head-first into the danger and intrigue of the Cold War. "I made 'Wonder Woman.' Now I want to make 'Wonder Woman 2.' It's a attractive story to tell, an important time to tell it and with people that I love".
