LOS ANGELES, Nov 13 — Gal Gadot has stated that she will not reprise her role as Diana Prince aka Wonder Women in the upcoming sequel unless Warner Bros cancels all deals and partnerships with Brett Ratner.
He helped finance Wonder Woman through his production company, RatPac Entertainment, and stands to make money on the sequel.
RatPac-Dune, a joint venture with Dune Entertainment, also co-produced Justice League in which Gal Gadot stars.
The director/producer has been accused of sexual assault by multiple women, among them actress Ellen Page and Olivia Munn.
Ratner has vehemently denied the allegations against him, first reported by the Los Angeles Times earlier this month.
Since the accusations came forward, Ratner has split from Warner Bros.
According to Page Six, Gadot — who last month backed out of a dinner honouring Ratner, where she was due to present him with an award — is taking a strong stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood.
She also doesn’t want the Wonder Woman franchise to benefit a man accused of sexual misconduct.
The source was quoted as saying: “They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women.”
