Gal Gadot will lead the cast of a new World War II revenge movie called Ruin before she steps into the boots of Wonder Woman for a new sequel. Wonder Woman 2 is also on Gadot's slate, with Patty Jenkins returning to direct with an eye toward a late 2019 release.
Gadot first appeared as Wonder Woman in 2016's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".
Ruin was written by Matthew and Ryan Firpo. Though Wonder Woman has become more prominent in the Justice League marketing lately, Gadot herself insists Justice League is not just a Wonder Woman movie with some other DC heroes thrown in (though given the success of Wonder Woman, that might not be the worst idea). The film will be produced by Marc Butan's MadRiver Pictures, with production set to begin in early 2018. The 32-year-old also recently signed onto star in Kornel Mundruczo underwater thriller Deeper, which also features Bradley Cooper, and tells the story of former astronaut who goes on a deep-sea dive mission.
Juan Martin del Potro battles past Alexander Zverev at Shanghai Masters
Zverev has already joined Federer and Shanghai top seed Rafael Nadal in the field for next month's ATP Finals in London. And then came the turning point as he yielded the crucial service break to go 3-2 down in the third set.
Helmed by Justin Kurzel, director of "Assassin's Creed", centers on a former Nazi captain who, as a way of making up for his crimes, hunts down and kills his former team of SS officers in Germany.
There is no word yet on the details of Gadot's role.
Kurzel is an Australian director whose 2015 adaptation of William Shakespeare's "Macbeth" debuted at the Cannes Film Festival.
