Jenkins to direct ‘Wonder Woman’ sequel

LOS ANGELES – Patty Jenkins will return to direct the 2019 sequel to this year’s hit superhero movie “Wonder Woman,” film trade publications said on Monday, after she became the highest-grossing female director in Hollywood history.

Jenkins, 46, will once again direct Israeli actress Gal Gadot as the superhero in “Wonder Woman 2,” scheduled for release on Dec. 13, 2019, publications including Variety and Hollywood Reporter said.

Both publications, citing unnamed sources, said Jenkins will be paid around $8 million to direct the sequel and would also receive a back end of the film’s box office gross, which would make her the highest-paid female director in Hollywood history.

Movie studio Warner Bros did not comment on the news and has not given any further details on the sequel. – Reuters
