Here's Wonder Woman, and what can she do? The director will be reunited with "Wonder Woman" lead actress, Gal Gadot.

Dave Callaham has been tapped to co-write Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Wonder Woman has proven to be by all measures (including dumbass MRA outrage) a colossal success. Jenkins and Johns have been hard at work on a treatment for "several months" and Callaham will work with the pair on a script. 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. Jenkins was working with him on Jackpot, an English-language adaptation of a book by Jo Nesbo; that project was gearing up to be Jenkins' next movie before she took on the assignment to direct Wonder Woman. The news comes on the heels of Jenkins officially closing the deal to return for the sequel in a history making moment that makes her the highest paid female director of all time. She famously wrote and directed the movie "Monster", starring Charlize Theron in an Oscar-winning role, in 2003. "It's wonderful, it's what you hope for", Jenkins said of the film's success.

The sequel remains to be in production by Warner Bros. has announced that it is scheduled to land in theaters by December 13, 2019.

Wonder Woman is still gathering a lot of attention, recently crossing $800 million worldwide and gathering Oscar buzz for Best Picture and Best Director.

"Sources say Jenkins will receive directing and writing fees in the high seven figures (think somewhere in the $7 million to $9 million range) on "Wonder Woman 2" but, more significantly, will have a considerable backend". Since its release, the combo has been requested to return for another film.
