It’s been just over a year since Gal Gadot graced the silver screen as everyone’s now-favorite DC superhero, Wonder Woman. In that film, she pretty much solidified her abilities as a lead actress in Hollywood, paving the way for her future in the biz for years to come.
But, of course, those who have been following her career know that she is no stranger to big budget films. She starred alongside Dwayne Johnson and co. in Fast Five, Fast & Furious 6, and Furious 7 (the latter was in a deleted flashback scene). According to a new report from Deadline, the actress has just inked a deal to reunite with Johnson in a new action-thriller called Red Notice.
Red Notice will come from previous Johnson collaborator Rawson Marshall Thurber, who is known for films like Central Intelligence, We’re the Millers, Dodgeball, and the upcoming Skyscraper. The film will begin shooting in April of 2019, and is slated for a 2020 release.
From the sound of it, Gadot was specifically approached for the role, with Thurber flying to London for less than 30 hours just so he could pitch it to her — an enviable place to be in, especially for someone who has gone through as many auditions as she has.
There is little known about the film, but it is being described as “a globetrotting, action-comedy, heist thriller designed as a three-hander between Johnson, Gadot, and another male star who’ll soon be set. Gadot plays a brilliant and mysterious figure in the art world.”
Is it just me or does her character sound suspiciously like Wonder Woman…?
