Patty Jenkins Officially Back for ‘Wonder Woman’ Sequel, Ready to Cash In

Why mess with a good thing? Patty Jenkins directed this summer’s blockbuster, Wonder Woman, which went on to make a gazillion dollars. That’s an official tally by the way. Also, now everyone knows Gal Gadot. She’s an idol to many. Kids are coming up to her and crying.

Variety has the exclusive deets.

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.

We all want that backend don’t we. Amirite?? Get it? It’s an ass joke.

Anyhoo, the actual official number for Wonder Woman‘s box office is $409 million in the United Sates and $813 million worldwide (!). Who wants to bet that Warner Bros. might try to screw her out of her cut? They’ll come back and find a way to fudge the numbers lower.

Jenkins now has serious power in Hollywood. She’s not just directing and writing Wonder Woman, she’s also got a TNT TV series that she’s developing with Chris Pine.

I still think it’s incredible that she did Monster 14 years ago, some random TV series in between and then returned over a decade later with Wonder Woman. Very talented!
