Wondering about the future of the Wonder Woman movie? Well, wonder no more.
The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Patty Jenkins has been hired to direct the 2017 Wonder Woman film. This comes just days after the original director, Michelle McClaren, left the director's chair over what was described as "creative differences."
Jenkins is best known for directing the thriller feature Monster, which earned an Oscar for lead actress Charlize Theron. Jenkins was previously in line to direct Marvel's Thor: The Dark World, but left that project before filming began. Like MacClaren, Jenkins has TV directing credentials, directing the pilot episode of The Killing as well as episodes of Arrested Development and Entourage.
Jenkins joins Gal Gadot, who was previously cast as Wonder Woman to debut in 2016's Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice. Warner Bros. has previously said filming on Wonder Woman would begin in the fall of 2017, aiming for a 2017 release.
