One of our favorite cinematographers at the moment is someone who has definitely flown a bit under the radar for far too long: Hoyte Van Hoytema. He first came to our attention with this work on “Let The Right One In,” and has since lined up a heckuva CV with credits on “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy,” “Her,” “Interstellar,” and the upcoming “Spectre.” Frankly, it’s somewhat criminal he’s yet to receive an Oscar nomination. And so, it was understandable that some excitement flew around the web that he would be lensing an upcoming superhero movie. But it turns out, that won’t be the case.
Yesterday, Collider reported that Hoytema would be the cinematographer on Warner Bros.‘ “Wonder Woman,” slated to be directed by Patty Jenkins. However, when we reached to the cinematographer directly, he was quite clear about his involvement.
“I have nothing to do with that movie,” he stated.
“Wonder Woman” opens on June 23, 2017. Production begins this fall and we’ll likely know more about additional cast members and behind the camera talent soon.
