Wonder Woman 2 Director Scores Record-Setting Raise

Wonder Woman 2 Director Scores Record-Setting Raise
Patty Jenkins is getting a big raise for her work on Wonder Woman 2. The director is a major part of what made Wonder Woman so successful and Warner Bros. wanted her back in the director's chair for the sequel from the very beginning. But Jenkins took it upon herself to negotiate a deal on par with what other directors, namely top-notch male directors, can command in Hollywood. To say the least, she was successful as she is reportedly set to make $9 million for her work on the sequel.

Negotiations took some time, but Patty Jenkins closed her deal to direct Wonder Woman 2 August of last year. Because Warner Bros. didn't lock her down for multiple movies out of the gate, Jenkins was in a position to work for this major deal. According to a new report that reveals what some of Hollywood's elite are making for their biggest projects,

Brie Larson Eyed For Disney’s Snow White Spinoff Rose Red

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is a time-honoured story that’s gone on to become a fixture of Disney’s prestigious archive – but what of her sister Rose Red?

From what we understand, the House of Mouse has now hatched a live-action “companion piece” designed to tell the famous tale from the perspective of Rose, with screenwriters Justin Merz and Evan Daugherty – creative mind behind Universal’s Snow White and the Huntsman – developing a revisionist take on the classic fairytale.

It’s still early, early days for the project, but tonight, we’re hearing that the studio has their eye on Captain Marvel star Brie Larson for the titular role. Though this scoop doesn’t come to us from Disney itself, it does make sense, given Larson’s connection to the House of Mouse via her involvement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

For those unfamiliar with Red Rose, she

Charlize Theron on Plans for ‘Atomic Blonde’ Sequel and Growing Up as a ‘Privileged White Person’

Charlize Theron on Plans for ‘Atomic Blonde’ Sequel and Growing Up as a ‘Privileged White Person’
Statuesque South African movie star and Sffilm tribute recipient Charlize Theron strode out on stage April 8 at San Francisco’s Castro Theater rocking leather shorts and looking every inch the fearless actress-producer, capable of taking on roles ranging from real-life serial killer Aileen Wuornos to depressed mother-of-three Marlo Moreau in Jason Reitman’s “Tully.” However, as she demonstrated in our wide-ranging conversation, appearances can be deceiving.

Tomb Raider movie review: raiders of the old movie

MaryAnn’s quick take… Another videogame adaptation in which empty avatars run around perfunctorily because that’s what the plot requires of them. There’s no humor, no fizz, no movie magic at all. I’m “biast” (pro): I’m desperate for movies about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto) women’s participation in this film

(learn more about this)

Very Indiana Jones. Much Last Crusade.

Except… they forgot the humor. They forgot the fizz. They forgot the verve. They forgot the fun.

Forget any Indy sparkle. This is a movie about old maps and secret tombs and puzzle boxes and exotic travel, and there isn’t even a hint of J. Peterman about it.

Lara wears our Perfect Tank in morose (£495); Adventurer’s Trousers in grim (£1,975); axe, belt, bandages her own.

This Tomb Raider movie: it has no personality.

Selena Gomez Joins Robert Downey Jr. in ‘The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle’
Selena Gomez will voice a role in Universal’s “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.”

The project stars Robert Downey Jr., while Tom Holland, Emma Thompson, and Ralph Fiennes round out the voice cast and Antonio Banderas and Michael Sheen will portray live-action characters.

Universal acquired the project last year, which will be directed by Stephen Gaghan from a screenplay he wrote with an earlier draft by Tom Sheppard. It’s based on the character from the 1920’s series of children’s books by Hugh Lofting, in which a Victorian-era physician opts to treat animals instead of humans because he’s able to speak with them.

Lofting’s character was portrayed by Rex Harrison in the 1967 musical “Doctor Dolittle,” which won Oscars for best original song and visual effects. Eddie Murphy starred in the 1998 film “Doctor Dolittle” and its 2001 sequel, which cumulatively grossed more than $470 million at the worldwide box office.

Quote of the Day: Patty Jenkins on Her Duty to Fight for Equal Pay on “Wonder Woman 2”

Jenkins on “Conan

Wonder Woman” helmer and record-smasher extraordinaire Patty Jenkins made headlines last month when, after a long negotiation process, she officially signed on to helm the superheroine sequel and became history’s highest-paid female filmmaker. Now, in the cover story for Variety’s “Power of Women La” issue, Jenkins has revealed that she felt a sense of feminist responsibility as she negotiated her “Wonder Woman 2” deal.

“You’re of course aware of the money,” Jenkins said of her salary talks. “But I’ve never been more aware of a duty than I was in this deal. I was extremely aware that I had to make sure I was being paid what the male equivalent would be.”

Not only is pay parity something Diana Prince would expect and demand, it’s a perennial issue for women in Hollywood. Megastars like Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain, and Jennifer Lawrence have spoken publicly about the pay gap, while TV actresses like Emmy Rossum and the women of “Big Bang Theory” and “Criminal Minds” have had to fight to be paid the same as their male co-stars.

Jenkins was aware of those women’s stories — and the countless other stories like them — and knew she was in an advantageous position after the success of “Wonder Woman.” “Women who have not been in a system that allows them to build up the same level of pay as men are not able to be paid the same as men forever if that’s the way it continues,” she observed. “You have to ask for it to happen, and you have to ask when you’re the appropriate person. I knew when Charlize [Theron] had to do it on ‘Snow White and the Huntsman,’ and I felt that it was my job to do it here.” She directed Theron in her Oscar-winning role as serial killer Aileen Wuornos in “Monster.”

According to Variety, “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot supported Jenkins all the way. “She is definitely paving the way for so many other female directors,” the actress commented. “I think it was very important that she fought to get the best deal. You got to walk the walk and talk the talk.”

The Killing,” “Arrested Development,” and “Five” are among Jenkins’ other credits. Next, she’s directing the pilot episode of TNT’s “One Day She’ll Darken.” The series follows a young woman who, while trying to learn about her past, crosses paths with Dr. George Hodel, a suspect of the Black Dahlia murder. Jenkins is also exec producing. She was recently announced as a keynote speaker at the third annual Women in Entertainment Summit and as one of Women and Hollywood’s 10th Anniversary Trailblazer Award winners.

Wonder Woman 2” is scheduled to hit theaters December 13, 2019.

‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins on Equal Pay, Hollywood Sexism and James Cameron’s Nasty Words

‘Wonder Woman’ Director Patty Jenkins on Equal Pay, Hollywood Sexism and James Cameron’s Nasty Words
Much like a certain Amazon goddess with a lasso, there are no heights that director Patty Jenkins can’t scale. Her blockbuster “Wonder Woman,” which has grossed a staggering $821 million worldwide since it opened in the summer, has become a rallying call for women everywhere and a beacon of empowerment in a Donald Trump-led world. Beyond all the Instagram posts of little girls decked out in “Ww” regalia while seeing the film and an endorsement from Hillary Clinton, Jenkins recently cracked another glass ceiling. She’ll be directing “Wonder Woman 2” for a reported $7 million to $9 million, a record salary for a female filmmaker.

As she negotiated the terms of her contract with Warner Bros. over several months, Jenkins was conscious of what earning a big paycheck would mean. “You’re of course aware of the money,” says Jenkins on a sunny afternoon in Los Angeles. “But I’ve never been more aware of a duty

How Chris Hemsworth's Career Put a Strain on His Marriage to Elsa Pataky
Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have been married for almost seven years and have three kids together - and in a recent interview with GQ Australia, the Aussie actor is opening up about the price his fame has cost his personal life. The moment the 34-year-old took on the role of Thor, his career catapulted, but it also put a strain on his marriage. "My wife and I fell in love, had kids, didn't really see each other for a few years, then fell back in love," he said. "In terms of work, she's certainly given up more than I have. She'd like me to step back and be at home with the kids more, and of course, I want that too. But I feel like I'm at this crucial point in my career - I've just got to set up for longevity or I'll slip off." One thing Elsa

Charlie's Angels Reboot Eyes Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o
With Sony finally moving forward with their Charlie's Angels reboot, after languishing in development for a few years, a new report claims that stars Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong'o are being eyed to play two of the three Angels in this reboot. We reported in May that actress Janelle Monae was at the top of the studio's "wish list" to play one of the Angels, but the actress isn't mentioned in this latest report, so it's possible that she's not in contention for the role anymore. Regardless, with casting starting to heat up, production could begin sooner rather than later.

Variety broke this news today, revealing that the studio is interested in several other "big names" for the reboot, although no specific actors were mentioned. Director Elizabeth Banks came aboard just over two years ago, but our report from May revealed that the script was undergoing a rewrite from Narcos

Kristen Stewart and Lupita Nyong’o are Wanted For The Charlie's Angels Reboot

According to Variety, Kristen Stewart (Twilight) and Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave) are wanted for the upcoming Charlie's Angels reboot. If cast, they would star as members of the female private detective agency. Nyong’o is a great actress! But, personally, I don't get Stewart's appeal. I've never really been impressed by anything that she has done. If I had to choose the best movie that she's been in, it would have to be David Fincher's Panic Room.

Elizabeth Banks (Pitch Perfect 2) is directing the film, and for some reason, she obviously sees something in Stewart that she wants in the movie. Stewart and Nyong'o aren't the only actresses that Banks and the studio are looking at for the film.

I'm sure the world is full of Kristen Stewart fans that would love to see her in this movie! If you're one of them, then maybe you'll
