Gal Gadot, the only good thing about the DCEU, is starring opposite of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the upcoming action-comedy Red Notice. Per Deadline:
Gal Gadot has closed a deal to star opposite Dwayne Johnson in Red Notice, the international action thriller which Rawson Marshall Thurber is directing from his original script. Universal Pictures won a heated multi-studio bidding battle in February that ended with a green light commitment in the biggest package deal so far this year. Red Notice will begin shooting April 2019 in Europe and Universal will release the film worldwide June 12, 2020.
The real winner in all of this is Rawson Marshall Thurber. The director has racked up quite the impressive resume with films like DodgeBall: A True Underdog Story, We’re The Millers, and The Mysteries of Pittsburgh. And with his partnership with Johnson, there appears to be a bit of a Scorsese/DiCaprio thing going on. I’m mean, they’re not winning Oscars, but it’s still a great partnership! I’m just going to assume that this will be a hit for Johnson as well.
