Patty Jenkins is an actor's director: Chris Pine
Chris Pine returns as Steve Trevor in the sequel, led by Gal Gadot
One of the most awaited releases of the year, Wonder Woman 1984 is hitting the Indian theatres on December 24. And Chris Pine, who returns as Steve Trevor in the sequel, says that he was thrilled to work again with director Patty Jenkins and actor Gal Gadot. “Patty knew exactly how she wanted Steve to come back, and she’s such an incredible storyteller, pictorially, cinematically, and in person. I was immediately excited by the prospect of being back in a world she would create again and, of course, working side by side with Gal. Patty and Gal are a really awesome duo.”
In the films, Steve proves to be Diana’s human connection and someone who is always in her corner. “Some actors like to come with a fully realised character, and others, like me, prefer to share that responsibility and really collaborate with their director. And she (Jenkins) loves doing that.” He calls Jenkins a true actor’s director. “That's what I love most about Patty. And she can do it all. She can be talking lighting with Matt [Jensen] and colors with Lindy [Hemming], and then, on the spot, talk about an acting beat with us in the most specific way, and that I love. That is an art, and it is incredibly exhausting and energy-consuming, but Patty just seems to be indefatigable.”
Wonder Woman 1984 will be released in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu across India. Apart from Gadot and Pine, the film also stars Kristen Wiig as the Cheetah, Pedro Pascal as Max Lord, Robin Wright as Antiope and Connie Nielsen as Hippolyta.
