On the Gal Gadot-Brett Ratner Story

Posted on the 15 November 2017 by Weminoredinfilm.com @WeMinoredInFilm

The Story: Gal Gadot stands up to Hollywood sexism and refuses to return for Wonder Woman 2 unless accused sex offender Brett Ratner, through his RatPac film financing company, is removed from the project.

Where the Story Came From: Gossip outlet Page Six, citing an unnamed Hollywood source.

The Possible Truth Behind the Story (via Deadline):

There was some noise online over the weekend that Gadot wouldn't sign for the sequel unless Brett Ratner's name was removed from the franchise. We hear this is false. First, Gadot is locked in to star in Wonder Woman 2 and there haven't been sour talks between the actress and Warner Bros' upper brass in regard to Ratner. The studio is pushing both Gadot and Jenkins this awards season, and both were in cheery attendance Saturday night at the Movie Academy's Governors Awards.

Second, RatPac Dune isn't committed to finance Wonder Woman 2; its commitments with WB end with the April 20 release of Rampage. In addition, Ratner isn't listed as producer on the first Wonder Woman, as RatPac was merely a passive financier.

What Gal Gadot Just Told ET:

"Look, there's been a lot written about how I feel and my views about this topic, and everyone knows how I feel about it. And the truth is there are so many people involved with making this movie, and they all have echoed the same sentiments."

What Petty Jenkins Just Told ET:

"That whole thing happened weeks ago, so that actually had nothing to do with Gal. That was a foregone conclusion, I think. I was surprised by that story."
