After multiple women, including Olivia Munn and Ellen Page, accused producer/director Brett Ratner of harassment and sexual assault, The New York Post reports that Gal Gadot will not return to Wonder Woman 2 if Ratner’s company is still attached to the project.
A source tipped off Page Six:
Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment helped produce 'Wonder Woman' as part of its co-financing deal with Warner Bros. The movie has grossed more than $400 million internationally, and Ratner’s company will take a healthy share of the profits. A Warner Bros. insider explained, “Brett made a lot of money from the success of ‘Wonder Woman,’ thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him.”
Gadot posted a message of solidarity on social media, standing with all of the women affected by sexual harassment and assault:
Earlier this week, Warner Bros. announced that it was severing ties with Ratner in light of the allegations against him.
