Gal Gadot to Star in Spy Thriller ‘Heart of Stone’

Print This Article

Gal Gadot has added another project to her very busy filming schedule: She’s set to star in “Heart of Stone,” an international spy thriller that has been described as a female take on action flick franchises like the “Mission Impossible” and James Bond movies.

Gadot’s next screen appearance is in the highly anticipated “Wonder Woman 1984,” the sequel to the 2017 blockbuster that will premiere on HBO Max on Dec. 25. The superheroine movie shifted to the screaming service following multiple theatrical postponements due to COVID-19.

Gadot’s other completed films are “Red Notice,” an art heist drama with Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds and a remake of the Agatha Christie murder mystery “Death on the Nile,” directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh as Hercule Poirot. Both are due for release in 2021, as is the HBO Max miniseries “Zack Snyder’s Justice League,” in which she’ll reprise her role as Wonder Woman alongside Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Jason Momoa.

On Gadot’s future slate are several films about real-life women. She’ll reteam with “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins to play Egyptian queen Cleopatra in “Queen of the Nile,” portray screen legend (and radio technology inventor) Hedy Lamarr in a Showtime miniseries, and play World War II heroine Irena Sendler, who smuggled Jewish children out of the Warsaw Ghetto.

As a producer, Gadot and her husband Jaron Versano are remaking “Queens,” based on a hit Israeli series about the women in a crime family who band together after their men are murdered and “Borderlife,” about an Israeli woman and a Palestinian man who fall in love and keep it a secret from their friends and family. Whether she’ll appear in either project has yet to be announced.

Also on Gadot’s production slate is the short-form National Geographic docuseries “#impact,” which will focus on women who have overcome obstacles to achieve great things in life.
