’To Catch a Thief’ Remake Is In Development With Gal Gadot Set To Star

Gal Gadot is currently one of the busiest actresses in Hollywood. Israeli actress starred last year in Red Notice and soon we’re going to watch her in Kenneth Branagh‘s Death on the Nile. Also, Gadot is set to reprise the role of Diana Prince in the upcoming Wonder Woman 3. And on top of all that, she’s also set to star in Netflix’s potential franchise starter Heart of Stone, Disney’s live-action remake of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in which she’ll play Evil Queen, and the new Cleopatra movie in which she’ll star in the titular role.

And even with all that, it’s still not enough. The 36-year-old actress now signed to star in the remake of Alfred Hitchcock‘s romantic thriller To Catch a Thief, Deadline confirmed. The original movie was released in 1955, and it starred Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, Jessie Royce Landis, John Williams, Charles Vanel, and Brigitte Auber. The movie won an Academy Award for Best Cinematography, and it was also nominated for the Art Direction-Set Direction and the Best Costume Design.
