Online content streaming platform Netflix recently acquired Gal Gadot-starrer "Heart of Stone".
“Hearts of Stone” is yet to be filmed and the “Wonder Woman” star will co-produce the movie with her Pilot Wave producing partner Jaron Varsano, Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn.
The movie is an espionage thriller, which is expected to launch a new franchise in the genre and is being developed by Skydance Studio.
It is the second major deal with a streamer for a Skydance-generated tentpole-sized film, after Amazon acquired the Chris Pratt-starrer "The Tomorrow War", according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Tom Harper, who most recently directed Amazon’s “The Aeronauts”, will helm the movie. Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder have penned the script for the movie, which will be produced by David Elliso, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger.
The details of the plot have been kept under wraps but the movie aims to put a female spin on iconic action franchises like "Mission: Impossible" and “James Bond”.
Gal Gadot most recently featured in superhero movie “Wonder Woman 1984”, which debuted both theatrically and on streamer HBO Max on December 25. Gadot will also star in the Kenneth Branagh-directed “Death on the Nile”, alongside a star-studded cast.
She recently wrapped production on Netflix’s "Red Notice", the Rawson Thurber Marshall-directed heist drama which also features Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds.
