Won’t Star In Wonder Woman Sequel If Producer Brett Ratner Stays: Gal

Gal Gadot as wonder woman

‘Wonder Woman’ star Gal Gadot has refused to make the sequel unless producer Brett Ratner steps away from the production. Ratner has been accused of sexual harassment and Gadot doesn’t want him benefiting from her work. His production company, RatPac-Dune Entertainment, helped produce ‘Wonder Woman’ along with Warner Bros.

Warner Brothers has also cut ties with Ratner.

‘The Rush Hour’ director has been accused of sexual harassment by multiple women, including Natasha Henstridge and Olivia Munn. ‘Juno’ actress Ellen Page also accused him of instructing another cast member to have sex with her. He wanted to confirm that she was a lesbian

“I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out. Together we stand. We are all united in this time of change,” Gadot wrote on Instagram.

‘Wonder Woman’ without Gal Gadot, won’t be Wonder Woman at all. Guess we all know what is going to happen to Bret Ratner.

“She’s tough and stands by her principles,” said an unnamed source at Page Six. “She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man ­accused of sexual misconduct against women.”

Recently, Harvey Weinstein was accused by several women of sexual harassment and abuse in the industry. Over a dozen women opened up about their instances of unsolicited sexual advances that Weinstein asked of them. And three women have accused the powerful film executive of rape. This prompted the #MeToo movement which has led to a slew of women speaking up about their encounters. Kevin Spacey, James Toback and Dustin Hoffman are among the directors and actors who have been accused of sexual harassment.
