Gal Gadot to star in new espionage thriller Heart of Stone

Israeli star, famed for playing heroine Wonder Woman, has signed an eight-figure deal to appear in the forthcoming Netflix feature

Gal Gadot is set to star in Tom Harper’s new espionage thriller, Heart of Stone, which will arrive on Netflix after the streaming giant won the worldwide rights.

The 35-year-old Israeli star is said to have signed an eight-figure deal to appear in the forthcoming feature, which is developed by Skydance Media and aspires to spawn a female-centric franchise modelled on the thrills and spills of Mission: Impossible and Bond. 

Gadot has been named as one of the producers, alongside her husband and business partner Yaron Varsano, while Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder have been enlisted as writers on the project.

Having just appeared in Wonder Woman 1984, the actress is next set to star in Kenneth Branagh’s Death On The Nile, while other upcoming roles include period drama Cleopatra and a biopic miniseries based on the life of Hedy Lamarr.

Thank you for helping to make Jewish News the leading source of news and opinion for the UK Jewish community. Today we're asking for your invaluable help to continue putting our community first in everything we do.

Unlike other Jewish media, we do not charge for content. That won’t change. Because we are free, we rely on advertising to cover our costs. This vital lifeline, which has dropped in recent years, has fallen further due to coronavirus.

For as little as £5 a month you can help sustain the vital work we do in celebrating and standing up for Jewish life in Britain.

Jewish News holds our community together and keeps us connected. Like a synagogue, it’s where people turn to feel part of something bigger. It also proudly shows the rest of Britain the vibrancy and rich culture of modern Jewish life.

You can make a quick and easy one-off or monthly contribution of £5, £10, £20 or any other sum you’re comfortable with.

Being a community platform means so much more than producing a newspaper and website. One of our proudest roles is media partnering with our invaluable charities to amplify the outstanding work they do to help us all.


There’s no shortage of oys in the world but Jewish News takes every opportunity to celebrate the joys too, through projects like Night of Heroes, 40 Under 40 and other compelling countdowns that make the community kvell with pride.
