Her star ascendant after stepping from "Fast and Furious" to "Wonder Woman," Gal Gadot has added post-World War II revenge thriller "Ruin" to her upcoming schedule.
Gal Gadot is the first cast member announced for "Ruin," a revenge thriller set in the wake of World War II.
The movie's synopsis has an ex-Nazi officer now hunting the remaining members of his own crack team, a twist on the sort of gritty war adventures found within Quentin Tarantino's 2009 vision "Inglourious Basterds" and David Ayer's 2016 movie "Fury."
With an early 2018 production schedule in place, Gadot would be able to finish on "Ruin" before moving on to mid-year project "Wonder Woman 2," Deadline reports.
The project is a first produced feature film from writing duo Matt and Ryan Firpo, with Justin Kurzel directing.
Kurzel won an award from the Australian Academy and five more from Cannes Film Festival with his own feature film debut, crime drama "Snowtown," before returning in 2015 with Shakespearean adaptation "Macbeth," featuring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard in its leading roles.
Fassbender and Cotillard were again on board for Kurzel's adaptation of video game franchise "Assassin's Creed" in 2016, and while that third film was less successful at review, it more or less doubled its $125m production budget on a $240m international box office.
In addition to 2019's "Wonder Woman 2," Gadot is also appearing in November's superhero ensemble "Justice League," an undated "Justice League Part 2," and 2020's "Flashpoint," as well as underwater exploration thriller "Deeper," which is being directed by Kornél Mundruczó of Cannes-winning "White God" fame and has Bradley Cooper as its co-star.
