Wonder Woman Sequel Fast Forwards To 1984
Principal photography is underway on Warner Bros. Pictures’ follow up to the Super Hero’s first outing, last summer’s record-breaking Wonder Woman, which took in $822 million at the worldwide box office. The follow-up will fast forward from the original’s WWII period setting to the 1980s (possibly the greatest decade ever…discuss) as the hero’s next big screen adventure finds her facing an all-new foe: The Cheetah.
Wonder Woman 1984 will also be helmed by acclaimed director Patty Jenkins, and star Gal Gadot in the title role. Wonder Woman 1984 is set to be the second in the trilogy originally signed up to by Gadot.
As previously announced, the film also stars Kristen Wiig in the role of the Super-Villain, The Cheetah, as well as Pedro Pascal. And Chris Pine returns as Steve Trevor. Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder, Patty Jenkins, Stephen Jones and Gal Gadot are producing the film. Rebecca Roven Oakley, Richard Suckle, Wesley Coller, Geoff Johns and Walter Hamada are the executive producers.
Joining her behind the scenes are several members of Jenkins’ Wonder Woman team, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (Amélie), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (Topsy-Turvy). Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (United 93) will cut the film. Production will take place in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Virginia, and in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands.
Set to open in cinemas on November 1, 2019, Wonder Woman 1984 is based on the character created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. With details about the plot being kept a closer secret than Batman’s identity, fans wonder what will happen in the film.
Will this, the 8th installment in the DC Extended Universe, be a success? Stay tuned to find out more!
