All Robin Wright fans, this is surely your lucky day as it's been revealed that the actress will reprise her role as the Amazonian Warrior General Antiope in 'Wonder Woman 1984'. In a recent interview, Wright stated that she will be shooting a flashback sequence in Spain along with Connie Nielson who plays the role of Hippolyta in the film.
While Wright's portrayal of General Antiope was one of the major highlights of the original Wonder Woman, her character met with a sad end in battle defending Themyscira against the German forces. But, her role of playing Diana or Wonder Woman's aunt is greatly remembered for having taught her the warrior craft.
Along with Wright, we will see other familiar faces returning to the Wonder Woman sequel, including Chris Pine who plays the role of Steve Trevor who is very much alive. The makers had given audiences a perception that his character had died towards the film's end; however, we can all breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Directed by Patty Jenkins, who is returning for the upcoming sequel, the film is based in 1984 and is set to tell the tale of Diana Prince reprised by Gal Gadot as she reunites with Steve Trevor to fight an evil foe: Cheetah played by Kristen Wiig. Actor Pedro Pascal will also be seen in a key role.
Production of Wonder Woman 1984 will take place in Washington, D.C., Alexandria, Virginia, and in the UK, Spain and the Canary Islands.
Reportedly, several members of Jenkins' Wonder Woman team will be the force behind the scenes, including director of photography Matthew Jensen, Oscar-nominated production designer Aline Bonetto (Amélie), and Oscar-winning costume designer Lindy Hemming (Topsy-Turvy). Oscar-nominated editor Richard Pearson (United 93) will cut the film.
Slated to hit theatres internationally on November 1, 2019, Wonder Woman 1984 is based on the character created by William Moulton Marston, appearing in comic books published by DC Entertainment. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
In other news, Robin Wright has come forward stating that her disgraced 'House of Cards' co-star, Kevin Spacey deserves a second chance. The actor was accused of sexual misconduct by several women.
