Gal Gadot Cast in Forthcoming Holocaust Drama

Gal Gadot is forming a new production company called Pilot Wave, alongside husband Yaron Varsano. 

The duo will be kicking things off with the fact-based historical thriller Irena Sendler. Gadot will star in the film and will produce with Varsano alongside Marc Platt for Warner Bros. 

Per the official description, Irena Sendler tells the harrowing story of a woman’s defiant stand against Polish Nazi occupation and the incredible network she developed to care for and save 2500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto. Following her arrest by the Gestapo during the height of the war, the drama becomes a race against time to save not only herself but the identities of the hidden thousands who’ll face certain execution.

“As producers, we want to help bring stories that have inspired us to life,” Gagot and Varsano said. “Pilot Wave will create content that promotes the perspectives and experiences of unique people and produce impactful stories aimed at igniting the imagination.”

You can see Gadot next in Wonder Woman 1984, which will open on June 5, 2020.
