WONDER WOMAN 1984 Star Gal Gadot Reteaming With Patty Jenkins For CLEOPATRA Movie

WONDER WOMAN 1984 Star Gal Gadot Reteaming With Patty Jenkins For CLEOPATRA Movie

Work on Wonder Woman 1984 was completed a long time ago, and before reteaming for a sequel, star Gal Gadot and director Patty Jenkins are set to bring the story of Cleopatra to the big screen...

Deadline reports that Paramount Pictures has won an auction - beating off the likes of Universal Pictures, Warner Bros., Netflix, and Apple TV+ - for Cleopatra starring Gal Gadot and directed by Patty Jenkins. They've previously teamed up on both Wonder Woman and Wonder Woman 1984

Laeta Kalogridis (Alita: Battle Angel) is penning the screenplay, and the plan is for this to be Jenkins and Gadot's next collaboration (likely before the unannounced Wonder Woman 3). 

Sony Pictures is still developing their own Cleopatra story; Angelina Jolie was attached to that for a time, as was Lady Gaga, while James Cameron, Denis Villenueve, and David Fincher were all eyed to direct at one time or another. The last rewrite was by David Scarpa, but the trade notes that Eric Roth is now working on it, so there could be a race to the finish line here. 

There's a lot of story to tell here, especially as Cleopatra first had to battle for the throne of Egypt before developing a complicated relationship with Rome which saw her become Caesar's lover.

Check out Gadot's reaction to the news below:
