‘Wonder Woman’ star Gal Gadot is reportedly taking a stand against working with Brett Ratner after he was accused of sexual harassment…
Gal Gadot is fighting back.
According to a report from Page Six, Gadot has told Warner Bros. that she will not return for the upcoming ‘Wonder Woman’ sequel so long as Brett Ratner’s production company is involved with the film.
Gadot’s protest stems from numerous sexual harassment allegations that have been made against Ratner in recent weeks and his company RatPac-Dune was one of the financiers who were involved in the original ‘Wonder Woman’ film that ended up grossing more than $820 million worldwide.
While Ratner’s company likely already received a financial windfall from the original movie, the sequel that is set to start Gadot with director Patty Jenkins also returning will undoubtedly be one of the biggest films of the year when it’s released.
It appears Gadot has demanded that Warner Bros. buy out Ratner from his part in the ‘Wonder Woman’ sequel or she won’t sign onto appear.
Obviously, Gadot has already starred as ‘Wonder Woman’ in several films including ‘Justice League’, which opens this Friday so losing her would be a disaster for an already troubled studio that has struggled to produce many superhero films that gained much traction with fans and critics.
‘Wonder Woman’ was by far the most critically acclaimed film since Warner Bros. launched a new shared DC film universe.
Warner Bros. had already previously announced that it was severing ties with Ratner through his ongoing deal where he was producing and directing films for the studio.
Now it seems Warner Bros. will have to cut ties with him one more time if they hope to keep Gadot playing Wonder Woman.
