Director Patty Jenkins has praised actor Chris Pine for the skill and brilliance he brought along when he played Wonder Woman’s love interest Steve Trevor in the DC film. The 46-year-old filmmaker retweeted a video message from the official Wonder Woman UK timeline, which showed snippets of the actor’s performance from the blockbuster film.
Jenkins wrote back saying, “Chris’ skill, talent and generosity blew me away, every day. Making that kind of performance look easy is epic bada**. He’s a beast.”
According to Contactmusic, the actor-director will collaborate again – this time on an upcoming drama series One Day She’ll Darken. The show is based on the autobiography of writer-producer Fauna Hodel who was given away at birth by her real mother to a black restroom attendant and grew up thinking that she was a mixed-race woman.
The show will see Chris in the lead, playing a former marine named Jay Singletary. Jenkins has been roped in to direct the pilot episode and executive produce the entire series. The show will also feature the popular Taken actor Leland Orser.
Wonder Woman 2 is slated to release in December 2019.
