Gal Gadot Joins Dwayne Johnson for Upcoming Action Comedy RED NOTICE

According to Variety, Gal Gadot has closed a deal to star opposite Dwayne Johnson in Red Notice, the action comedy which Rawson Marshall Thurber is directing from his original script. Universal Pictures won a heated multi-studio bidding battle in February that ended with a green light commitment in the biggest package deal so far this year. Red Notice will begin shooting April 2019 in Europe and Universal will release the film worldwide June 12, 2020.

This will mark Gadot's first starring role outside the DC universe since she joined the A-list on Wonder Woman. She is currently shooting Wonder Woman 2, reuniting with director Patty Jenkins. She recently aligned with Sue Kroll on a Warner Bros deal for My Dearest Fidel, a fact-based tale that is a potential star vehicle for her.

The film's log line is being kept under wraps, but it is described as a globe-trotting, action-comedy, heist thriller designed as a three-hander between Johnson, Gadot and another male star who'll soon be set. Gadot plays a brilliant and mysterious figure in the art world.

Red Notice got studios in a lather because it was regarded as another strong original IP idea by Thurber, in his third collaboration with Johnson, Hollywood's most bankable tent pole star. Thurber and Johnson most recently completed Skyscraper, which Universal and Legendary are releasing July 13.

Gadot's first film role came as Gisele Yashar in The Fast and the Furious film franchise. She went on to achieve world wide recognition for portraying Wonder Woman in the DC Extended Universe, starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016), and then the solo film Wonder Woman and the ensemble Justice League (both 2017). In 2018, Gadot was included on Time's annual list of THE 100 most influential people in the world.
