Patty
Jenkins

Film Director

Jenkins put herself on the map with her directorial debut, “Monster” (2003) — earning Charlize Theron an Oscar for playing serial killer Aileen Wuornos — then soared into the commercial stratosphere with the comic-book adventure “Wonder Woman” (2017), the all-time highest grossing film directed by a woman, with a worldwide take of more than $821 million. In between, she spent a decade-plus helming small-screen projects, including the pilot for “The Killing.” Last year, she directed the premiere episode of TNT’s “I Am the Night,” created by her husband, Sam Sheridan, and now she’s reeling in a reported $9 million to direct “Wonder Woman 1984,” scheduled for release in June 2020. In September, she signed a three-year overall TV deal with Netflix reportedly worth $10 million.
