‘Wonder Woman 2’ Will Be the First Film to Adopt PGA’s New Anti-Harassment Guidelines
The Producers Guild of America just rolled out their new anti-harassment guidelines, put in place following a months-long period of Hollywood exposing stories of sexual misconduct and workplace abuse brought on by the allegations against Harvey Weinstein in October. On Saturday, the PGA announced that Wonder Woman 2, which will probably begin shooting very shortly, will be the first movie to operate under the new guidelines.
The PGA presidents announced the news at the PGA Awards, according to Vanity Fair’s Rebecca Keegan:
The PGA’s guidelines, created by the PGA’s Anti-Sexual Harassment Task Force, outline different recommended ways of reporting workplace harassment, provide links to training resources, and create a protocol for victims and witnesses to report instances of harassment to their employers and coworkers. The rollout of the guidelines follows a period of reckoning for Hollywood, in which multiple powerful actors and industry heads have been accused, some by multiple people, of sexual misconduct. Gal Gadot reportedly refused to return for the Wonder Woman sequel if producer Brett Ratner, who had a producing deal with Warner Bros. that the studio decided not to renew, and who has been accused of harassment by multiple actresses, was involved in the project.
Wonder Woman 2 hits theaters November 1, 2019.
