As Warner Bros. and director Patty Jenkins prepare to shoot the solo Wonder Woman movie in London this Fall, some new details on the production have begun to emerge – including an interesting working title, a secondary shooting location, and the addition of an award winning director of photography.
First up, Meet The Movie Press would seem to have confirmed a rumor doing the rounds that Dutch-Swedish cinematographer Hoyte Van Hoytema (Let the Right One In, The Fighter, Her, Interstellar, Spectre) will be putting his Academy Award-winning skills to use as director of photography on the movie. With two-time Academy Award winner Bill Westenhofer already on-board as visual effects supervisor, we can rest assured that Wonder Woman will, at the very least, look great.

Also, thanks to Production Weekly, we now know the movie’s shooting title will be “Nightingale,” which could be a reference to the DC Comics character of the same name who actually debuted in Wonder Woman #317, or perhaps to Florence Nightingale, who would have been making her lamplight-assisted rounds during the time the film is rumoured to be set.
And finally, Askanews is reporting that Basilicata, Italy is being lined up as a secondary shooting location after the UK. I don’t know about you, but I could definitely see this stunning region located in the South of the Country doubling for Diana’s (Gal Gadot) fictional island home of Themyscira.
Wonder Woman also stars Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, and is set for release on June 23, 2017.
