Israeli actress Gal Gadot is currently one of the most known actresses in Hollywood. She kicked off her career in Hollywood in 2009’s Fast & Furious movie directed by Justin Lin, and she reprised the role in Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6. She also reprised the role in Furious 7 in one flashback scene, which was cut from the movie.
Since then, Gadot’s career has rapidly grown. Soon after she finished her work on the Fast & Furious franchise, she was cast as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice. She reprised the role in Wonder Woman solo movie, crossover movie Justice League, the sequel Wonder Woman 1984, and Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of Justice League. Wonder Woman 3 is currently in development, with Gadot set to reprise the role and Patty Jenkins set to return as writer and director.
Gadot’s most recent movie was Netflix’s Red Notice, in which she starred alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds. She’s also set to star in Netflix’s potential franchise-starter Heart of Stone, for which Gadot reportedly signed a multi-movie deal with Netflix. Also, one of her upcoming projects is Cleopatra, the upcoming biopic about the last ruler of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt. Gadot recently teased her upcoming project with these words:
“I can’t reveal a lot, but I can tell you that we’re going to celebrate the Cleopatra story. We’re going to show not just how sexy and appealing she was, but how strategic and smart, and how much impact she had and still has on the world we’re living in today. I’ve watched all the ‘Cleopatra’ movies throughout history, but I feel like we’re telling the story the world needs to hear now.” — InStyle Magazine (via Variety)
Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins was initially announced as the director of Cleopatra, but she recently stepped down due to scheduling conflicts, and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier director Kari Skogland signed as the new director.
The release date of the Cleopatra movie is still TBA.
