The writing team spearheading Wonder Woman 2 is about to welcome some new blood.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Dave Callaham, one of the scribes behind hit actioner The Expendables, has been brought in to co-write the 2019 sequel alongside Geoff Johns and Patty Jenkins, the latter of whom recently agreed to write, direct and produce Diana’s second solo flick.

Bringing an end to months of speculation, two days ago Warner Bros. announced that Jenkins had finally put pen to paper on a seven-figure deal, becoming the highest-paid female director ever in the process. The finer details of said arrangement are yet to be disclosed, but THR went on to claim that Jenkins is poised to earn anywhere between $7m and $9 million up front, along with a “considerable backend,” which is to say that the filmmaker will receive a small portion of the sequel’s box office takings.
