Patty Jenkins, who directed the blockbuster hit Wonder Woman, is all set to return for the superhero film’s highly-anticipated sequel, ending months of speculation.

Jenkins has closed a deal with Warner Bros. to helm, co-write and produce the movie, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

It makes her the highest paid female director in Hollywood history. Jenkins will reportedly receive directing and writing fees in the high seven figures (somewhere in the $7 million to $9 million range, according to the Hollywood Reporter).

Gal Gadot already is attached to the follow-up, which Warner Bros. has dated for December 13, 2019.

Wonder Woman smashed box office records upon its release in July, raking in more than $800 million globally, and becoming the highest-grossing live-action movie by a female director.
