On this episode of Collider Movie Talk (Tuesday September 12th, 2017) Mark Ellis, Jon Schnepp, Perri Nemiroff, Dennis Tzeng, Natasha Martinez and Wendy Lee discuss the following: 1) Patty Jenkins closes record deal to direct Wonder Woman 2; now highest-paid female filmmaker in history 2) Rian Johnson has no plan to direct Star Wars Episode 9 (for now) 3) Opening This Week – American Assassin 4) Leonardo DiCaprio wants to play Stan Lee in biopic, according to Stan Lee 5) Daniel Dae Kim in negotiations Ed Skrein in Hellboy reboot 6) Mail Bag 7) Live Twitter Thanks to a report from Variety, Patty Jenkins has officially signed on to direct Wonder Woman 2 for DC Films and Warner Bros. The trade reports that after an unusually “lengthy and tough” negotiation, the director closed a deal to not only direct but also co-write and produce making this a precedent-setting job, and making Jenkins the highest-paid female filmmaker in history. It appears Rian Johnson has taken himself out of the running to direct Star Wars: Episode 9; at least for now. In a news conference in Japan promoting The Last Jedi, Johnson said he isn’t planning to direct Episode 9, nor had he ever planned to helm the follow up. OPENING THIS WEEK BUY OR SELL Stan Lee was recently speaking at a panel during Wizard World Nashville, this coming from a report from AIPT!, where he revealed that none other than Leonardo DiCaprio would like to play the Marvel Icon in a biopic about his life. THR is reporting that recently departed Hawaii Five-0 star Daniel Dae Kim is now in negotiations to join the cast of Lionsgate and Millennium’s Hellboy reboot. Kim will take over the role recently vacated by Ed Skrein after Skrein openly resigned after the outcry over whitewashing an Asian-American character.
