Gal Gadot to will star as Irena Sendler in Holocaust drama

Sendler is the Polish heroine who saved thousands of Jewish children during the Holocaust

Published: 13th October 2019

Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot will produce and star in Irena Sendler, based on the Polish heroine who saved thousands of Jewish children during the Holocaust.

Irena Sendler has been set up with Warner Bros through Gadot’s newly formed Pilot Wave, with producing partner and husband Jaron Varsano.

Justine Juel Gillmer, whose credits include Harry Haft, will be writing the screenplay, based on Sendler’s work in the Polish underground in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. Sendler worked with dozens of others to smuggle out children, provide them with false identification and place them with families. She was arrested by the Gestapo in 1943 and tortured but never revealed any information about the children.

Gadot, a native of Israel, is also producing and starring in Wonder Woman 1984, which will open on June 5 2020. She’s starring in Kenneth Branagh’s Death on the Nile, the sequel to Murder on the Orient Express, as Linnet Ridgeway-Doyle. She is working with Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Netflix’s Red Notice as well.

Gadot and Versano are also developing My Dearest Fidel as a possible star vehicle for Gadot with Sue Kroll producing.
