Patty Jenkins is world’s highest paid female director as she signs Wonder Woman 2 deal

September 12th, 2017 by Marc Comments

Firstly, we LOVED Wonder Woman… just thought we would get that out of the way first.

Next, we know back in July it was revealed that director Patty Jenkins was working on the script to the Wonder Woman sequel (here) and then it was pretty much certain that she was also directing (here). but now it’s officially official.

Jenkins has closed a deal to come back for the Warner Bros/DC Sequel.

Good news, indeed!


And it looks like she’s set to be the highest paid female director in the world with a pay cheque of around $8m to write, direct and produce, with a deal that will get her more from the ‘backend of the box office grosses too’.

That’s all we have for now… but it’s more than enough to make our evening!

Wonder Woman will get her sequel on December 13th, 2019

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
