The “Wonder Woman” sequel will be the first film production to implement a newly released set of guidelines by the Producer’s Guild of America. The aim of these guidelines? To prevent and deal with sexual harassment on film sets.
The guidelines spell out a number of ways film productions can stymie the tide of sexual harassment on sets including designating advocates on set to whom workers can report concerns without fear of reprisal.
The announcement came at the Producer’s Guild of America Awards on Saturday reports Vanity Fair (via Screen Rant). It follows in the wake of the first “Wonder Woman” being partly funded (due to a then co-financing deal with Warners) by RatPac-Dune Entertainment whose owner Brett Ratner was accused of sexual harassment by a number of women including Ellen Page.
RatPac-Dune isn’t involved in the sequel in any capacity. The follow-up begins shooting mid-year ahead of a late 2019 release.
