Gal Gadot teams up with her Wonder Woman director for new 'Cleopatra' movie!

By Rachelle  /  12 Oct 2020 (Monday)

Wonder Woman director and actor duo Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot have announced that they will be teaming up once again but this time, it's for a Cleopatra movie!

The period biographical drama will be scripted by Laeta Kalogridis whose credits include Alexander, Shutter Island, and most recently Alita: Battle Angel
Cleopatra's tale has all the makings of a big female empowerment story, told by women. She was mostly played as a seductress by Elizabeth Taylor in the 1963 Joseph Mankiewicz-directed Cleopatra. The film cost more than any film to date and despite winning four of the nine Oscars for which it was nominated and being a big hit at the box office, Cleopatra nearly bankrupted 20th Century Fox.

Paramount Pictures won the bidding for distribution rights to the Egyptian queen epic, for which Gadot herself pitched in a select number of Zoom meetings.

Gadot and Jenkins most recent work together, Wonder Woman 1984, will open in cinemas on December 24.
