Patty Jenkins has closed a deal to direct the sequel to the wildly successful “Wonder Woman,” Variety reported Monday.

Variety had previously reported Jenkins was writing a script for the sequel with Geoff Johns and Jon Berg.

“Wonder Woman” made $813 million worldwide since it was released this summer and is the highest-grossing, live-action film directed by a woman.

Exact contract figures were not available, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jenkins will be the highest paid female director ever, probably making $7 to $9 million upfront as well as a cut of the film's revenue once it comes out. 

Jenkins was paid $1 million for the first “Wonder Woman” movie, and its success left her in a much better negotiating position for the sequel, THR noted.

Gal Gadot, who played the title character, had already signed on for the sequel, set to release Dec. 13, 2019.

Fans were relieved and happy to hear Jenkins' return is official.
