E! News confirms a new release date for the sequel to 2017’s Wonder Woman.
The super hero daama starring Gal Gadot will hit theaters a month and a half earlier than expected on November 1, 2019 and it seems like this change in schedule might have something to do with Star Wars: Episode IX.
The blockbuster movie was originally scheduled to be released on December 20, 2019 but speculations are that the decision to push back the release of LucasFilm’s Star Wars: Episode IX to the same release date was the cause for the rescheduling. Apparently, a Hollywood weekend ain’t enough for two major hit movies.
Patty Jenkins will write, produce and direct the Wonder Woman sequel, and is set to earn somewhere in the $8 million range, according to some reports. The action flick’s budget was $150 million and was wildly successful at the box office, grossing $409 million in the US alone.
E! News contacted Warner Bros. regarding recent speculations that Gadot will not participate if producer Brett Ratner was still attached to the project. The studios called those reports false.
