AceShowbiz – Director Patty Jenkins has no interest in directing an upcoming spin-off of her record-breaking “Wonder Woman” film.
The filmmaker recently won a pitch for another adaptation of the DC Comics superheroine’s story to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime, but she is hoping she won’t be asked to direct the project.
“I’m not going to direct (the Amazon film) hopefully,” she tells Total Film magazine. “I’m going to try really hard not to. It’s not going to be easy.”
“But (comic book writer) Geoff Johns and I came up with the story and we sold the pitch, and we’re going to get it going. I’ll produce it, for sure.”
Patty, who made history as the first woman to direct a big budget superhero film with “Wonder Woman”, starring Gal Gadot, admits she feels creatively depleted after wrapping up the sequel, “Wonder Woman 1984“.
”I’m not going to nail down a fresh thought about it (the Amazon Prime spin-off) until this movie (‘Wonder Woman 1984’) comes out, because I kind of want to give myself a palate cleanser, and be fresh of mind,” she shares.
“Wonder Woman 1984”, starring Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, Kristen Wiig, Pedro Pascal and Robin Wright Penn, is scheduled for release this summer.
