Since her portrayal of DC’s powerhouse Wonder Woman, Gadot has become a household name in the movie industry, and her forthcoming role said to be similar to action franchises like James Bond and Mission: Impossible.

Per a report from Geek Tyrant, comic book writer Greg Rucka, who is behind the script of Charlize Theron’s film The Old Guard, is poised to pen the script for Gadot’s upcoming project.

According to Discussing Film, the yet-untitled movie is likely to be a “Spy versus spy” flick, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Details of the plot are still yet to be revealed also.


Since The Old Guard proved to be such a wonderful action film, we can only expect Gadot’s next feature follows in the same path.

The kingdom of Dahomey was a region that reigned supreme in the 18th and 19th century and the plot of the movie goes thus:

The film is produced through TriStar Pictures by Davis, Cathy Schulman’s Welle Entertainment, Julius Tennon, and Maria Bello.

Speaking on the film, the producers said:

We at JuVee are beyond excited to introduce this incredible story of the Women Warriors of The Dahomey Ahosi tribe to the world. It’s time that they truly occupy their place in history and in Gina Prince-Bythewood’s hands, it will be a gamechanger. This project could not be a more perfect example of our legacy.”

The runtime of Christopher Nolan’s reality-altering thriller Tenet has been revealed.

There is a lot of buzz surrounding this movie because of the filmmaker’s knack for taking the term ‘thriller’ to a whole new level. Added to that, the plot is might be his most ambitious yet.

Dealing with a concept called “time inversion”, Tenet stars John David Washington as a man who is recruited to change the course of events in an attempt to stop an apocalyptic future.

As disclosed by a Korean rating board through The Independent, the film is reportedly 149 minutes, 59 seconds long (just a second short of 2 hours, 20 minutes).

I sincerely hope that the majority of that time proves to be as exhilarating as a lot of fans hope.
