Warner Brothers have announced that Patty Jenkins will direct Wonder Woman 2.

Variety reports that, while an exact number could not be unveiled, sources say that Jenkin's new price tag is in the $8 million range for writing, directing and producing credits. Her deal with Warner Bros makes her the highest paid female film director in history. She was paid $1 million for directing the first Wonder Woman movie, so you can guess how huge amount she would be getting to helm its sequel.

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.

Wonder Woman, which hit theaters June 2, became the highest-grossing movie ever directed by a woman.

Wonder Woman was the fourth instalment in the DC Extended Universe and the first feature-length film for the superheroine. Gal Gadot, who also appeared as Wonder Woman in 'Batman vs Superman" will reprise the role in upcoming DCEU film "Justice League' which is slated to be released on November 16 this year. The black-and-white film made a splashy debut at the festival on Saturday and sparked keen interest from buyers. The film was produced by Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder, Zack Snyder and Richard Suckle, with Stephen Jones, Geoff Johns, Jon Berg, Wesley Coller and Rebecca Steel Roven serving as executive producers.

Directors like Ava DuVernay are working to spotlight and hire more female directors and crew members, and it looks like Jenkins has been fighting the pay inequity fight. Wonder Woman 2 is set to hit theaters December 13, 2019. Jenkins will also make money on the back end of the film with box office sales.
