Last we saw Gal Gadot on the big screen, she was still saving the world as Wonder Woman, first in DC's 2017 solo movie and later in Justice League. Today, Deadline announced Gadot’s first major move outside of the DC world: she is set to star alongside Dwayne Johnson in Red Notice, an upcoming action-comedy project from Universal that will premiere in the summer of 2020.
Details are currently unknown, but the general idea is that the movie is an international heist thriller action-comedy that will star Gadot, Johnson, and another male star who has yet to be cast. Gadot will play a “brilliant and mysterious figure in the art world,” Deadline reports. Johnson himself announced a few months ago that he will play an Interpol agent “who treads the globe to hunt down the greatest art thief the world has ever seen,” which, from today’s news, sounds like it might be Gadot.
Red Notice is written and will be directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber. It will mark Thurber and Johnson’s third collaboration, following Central Intelligence and Skyscraper, which will drop later this summer.
Gadot is currently shooting Wonder Woman 2, which will see her reunite with director Patty Jenkins. The film will take place in the 1980s, 60 years after the events of the first movie, in America, at the height of the Cold War. The film will also feature Narcos actor Pedro Pascal in a still unidentified role and Kristen Wiig, who will play the villain: Cheetah.
