Wonder Woman 1984 filming in NOVA this summer, bringing Gal Gadot, Kristin Wiig and more tourism dol
The follow-up to Warner Bros. Pictures and DC’s hugely successful Wonder Woman, titled Wonder Woman 1984, will film for several weeks in the Alexandria area this summer.
The next Wonder Woman feature film brings critically acclaimed director, Patty Jenkins, back to the helm and will once again star Gal Gadot in the lead role, alongside Kristin Wiig and Pedro Pascal.
The movie is scheduled for release on November 1, 2019.
“We are delighted to welcome the Wonder Woman team to Virginia,” said Governor Ralph Northam. “We are confident that this trailblazing project will find a perfect home in Alexandria and look forward to the super impact it will have on our economy and the continued growth of Virginia’s lucrative production industry.”

The project is eligible to receive a financial Virginia film incentive after expenditures have occurred. The exact amount will be based on the number of Virginia workers hired, Virginia goods and services purchased, and deliverables, including Virginia tourism promotions.
The Virginia Film Office is part of the Virginia Tourism Corporation, the state agency charged with marketing the state of Virginia.
Tourism is an instant revenue generator in Virginia. In 2017, visitors spent $25 billion, supporting 232,000 jobs and contributing $1.73 billion in state and local taxes.
