Diana Prince has found her latest villain to 'hunt' down.
According to Deadline, Kristen Wiig is the top choice to play the villain role of Cheetah in the 'Wonder Woman' sequel opposite Gal Gadot.
What we know already is Patty Jenkins will be returning to write, direct, and produce the pic after landing a new contract in the high eight-figure range. Following the news that the studio has slated the movie for Nov. 1, 2019, finding this key role became a top priority.
Insiders indicate that Wiig was always high on Jenkins’ list for the part and had let Wiig know about her interest before Jenkins left to location scout for the project. While it is currently unknown if Wiig is completely on board for the role, a recent meeting between Wiig and top execs began to move things in the right direction.
Wiig has starred in movies like 'Bridesmaids' and 'The Martian' and will also be featured in the upcoming film 'Where’d You Go, Bernadette?'
