Gal Gadot to play the lead in Heart of Stone
Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder have penned the script for the film, which will be bankrolled by David Elliso, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger
Gal Gadot has been signed to play the lead in the upcoming Skydance spy film, Heart of Stone. Tom Harper, who most recently helmed Amazon's The Aeronauts, will direct the film, which is expected to launch a new franchise in the genre.
Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder have penned the script for the film, which will be bankrolled by David Elliso, Dana Goldberg, and Don Granger. The details of the plot have been kept under wraps but several sources state that the studio aims to make a film akin to Mission: Impossible and James Bond franchises, starring a female character in the lead.
Gadot also produce the film along with her Pilot Wave producing partner Jaron Varsano, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn. The actor currently awaits the release of her much-delayed superhero movie Wonder Woman 1984, which will be released theatrically and on streamer HBO Max on December 25.
Gadot will also star in the Kenneth Branagh-directed Death on the Nile. She recently finished shooting for Netflix's Red Notice, the Rawson Thurber Marshall-helmed heist drama, which also features Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds.
