Gal Gadot reportedly won’t do ‘Wonder Woman’ sequel if Brett Ratner is involved
Gal Gadot, star of the smash-hit summer blockbuster Wonder Woman, has reportedly told Warner Bros. that she won’t be on board for Wonder Woman 2 unless Brett Ratner has nothing to do with the project.
Ratner is one of the latest Hollywood figures to come under fire for alleged sexual misconduct. Six women, including Olivia Munn, came forward in early November to say the producer/director sexually abused and harassed them, and this week actress Ellen Page penned a Facebook post saying Ratner harassed and outed her when she was just 18.
Ratner’s production company, RatPac Entertainment, helped finance Wonder Woman and reaped the benefits of the film’s $400 million gross domestic box office returns. While it’s unclear what role RatPac might have had in backing Wonder Woman 2, an unnamed Warner Bros. “insider” told Page Six that Gadot is pressuring the studio to cut all ties.
“Brett made a lot of money from the success of Wonder Woman, thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him,” the source told Page Six.
Ratner and Warner Bros. have already made moves to separate. He’s off the Goldfinch project, and has removed his office at Warner Bros.
