Patty Jenkins And Chris Pine Reunite, But Not For Wonder Woman 2 (Yet)

The director of Wonder Woman, Patty Jenkins, and one of the film's stars, Chris Pine, are reuniting for a TNT series called One Day She'll Darken. The six-issue series has received a straight-to-series order, according to Deadline. Pine is set to star in the full series while Jenkins is attached to direct the pilot and potentially additional episodes of the series written by her husband, Sam Sheridan (A Fighter's Heart).

Chris Pine

The project was inspired by the autobiography of Fauna Hodel, who was given away by her teenage birth mother to a black restroom attendant in a Nevada casino in 1949. As Fauna begins to investigate the secrets to her past, she follows a sinister trail that swirls ever closer to an infamous Hollywood gynecologist, Dr. George Hodel, a man involved in the darkest Hollywood debauchery and a suspect in the infamous "Black Dahlia" murder of Elizabeth Short in Los Angeles in 1947. Pine is set to play Jay Singletary, a former marine turned disgraced reporter looking for redemption.

Wonder Woman 2 has been officially announced with Jenkins back at the helm. Pine, who is also known for his work on the Star Trek franchise, will next be seen in Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time. It hasn't yet been confirmed whether or not Pine will return for the Wonder Woman sequel.
