'Wonder Woman 2' to Make Patty Jenkins Highest-Paid Female Director Ever

Patty Jenkins Wonder Woman 2 Deal Makes Her Highest Paid Female Director Report

Warner Brothers have announced that Patty Jenkins will direct Wonder Woman 2. She's at last left all necessary signatures, as per Variety, and if reports are to be accepted, arranged an expense in the area of $8m (£6m) to compose, direct and deliver the new movie - making her the most generously compensated female producer ever.

A source pegged the deal at $5 million, which makes it the top deal of this year's TIFF market to date, tied with Neon's pickup of I, Tonya.

Jenkins will reportedly receive a seven-figure directing and writing fee, which is said to be in the range of $7 million to $9 million.

After months and months of deliberating- and hoping that the studios would come to their senses- we finally have the answer we've been all waiting to hear: Patty Jenkins WILL direct the Wonder Woman sequel!

Jenkins is also in the middle of developing a TNT TV series with Wonder Woman's Chris Pine, inspired by the autobiography of Fauna Hodel. "Wonder Woman" earned $409 million in the United States and $813 million worldwide.

This has been a roller coaster ride for Jenkins, who rocketed from the beloved indie director of Monster to one of Hollywood's most sought-after blockbuster makers. While this was a success for everyone involved, including star Gal Gadot, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros, Patty Jenkins was pivotal in steering the film to both narrative and commercial success as director. Wonder Woman has also become a box office hit, cumulating $816.3 million during its run.

Wonder Woman pulled in US$103 million (NZ$140 million) at the North American box office on opening weekend, with its global haul so far sitting at US$816 million (NZ$1.1 billion).

Jenkins has been up-front about how she feels about getting back into the director's chair.

The Amazon princess reigns over other DC Extended Universe films in the USA box office. Until then, Jenkins had been asked about her role in the sequel multiple times, but never admitted she was working on anything.

Wonder Woman 2 is set to open December 13, 2019. She originally wanted an amount similar to what Zack Snyder got after he directed Man of Steel.
