Production underway on 'Wonder Woman 1984'

June 15 (UPI) — Director Patty Jenkins and actress Gal Gadot are now filming Wonder Woman 1984, Warner Bros. Pictures announced Thursday.

The sequel to last summer’s critically acclaimed blockbuster Wonder Woman will co-star Kristen Wiig as the super-villain The Cheetah, while Chris Pine will reprise his role of Steve Trevor from the first film, which took place in 1917.

The studio said filming on the follow-up is expected to take place in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Va., the United Kingdom, Spain and the Canary Islands.

The movie is set to open in theaters Nov. 1, 2019.

On Wednesday, Gadot tweeted a photo of her as the immortal Diana Prince/Wonder Woman looking at numerous television monitors. She captioned the image, “Wonder Woman 1984.”

One of the screens shows Larry Hagman in a scene from the TV series Dallas, while another features model Christie Brinkley sitting in her red sports car in the big-screen comedy Vacation.

Jenkins shared on Twitter a photo of Pine in a shopping mall, surrounded by people wearing 1980s-style clothing.

“Welcome to WONDER WOMAN 1984, Steve Trevor!” Jenkins tweeted.
