Celebrity News: The filmmaker directed the first tape of the heroine, which managed to raise more than 800 million worldwide
Filmmaker Patty Jenkins has reached an agreement with Warner Bros. studio to direct the sequel to “Wonder Woman,” one of the year’s biggest hits.
Gal Gadot is back in the skin of the super heroine, and the film is scheduled to arrive in theaters in December 2019.
Prior to this confirmation, the publication had already indicated that Jenkins had been working on the script for this sequel with the help of Geoff Johns, who oversaw the DC Comics universe for the studio.
“Wonder Woman” has raised more than 400 million dollars in North America and more than 800 million worldwide.
This is the fourth film in the DC Extended Universe, opened in 2013 with “Man of Steel”. Then came “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad”.
“Wonder Woman,” with $ 100.5 million, was the best ever release by a director, beating Sam Taylor-Johnson’s (“Fifty Shades of Grey”) brand, with $ 93 million in 2015.
The film, starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Robin Wright and the Spanish Elena Anaya, tells the origin of the super heroine since she was known simply as Diana, Princess of the Amazons, on the idyllic island of Themyscira.
There she will begin her training to become a powerful warrior until in her life she crosses a pilot who discovers the war that is taking place in the world and decides to leave her home to fight on the allied side of World War I.
Jenkins emphasizes to have directed chapters of series like “Arrested Development”, “Entourage”, “The Killing” or “Betrayal”.
However, she came to Wonder Woman after another woman, Michelle MacLaren (known for her work in series as “Breaking Bad” or “Game of Thrones”) resigned the project because it did not match the study’s vision of the kind of film they aspired to make.
