The last few years have brought us plenty of Gal Gadot on the big screen, and she may soon grace our TVs, too.
The "Wonder Woman: 1984" star is reportedly close to reaching a deal for a Showtime limited series from Endeavor Content. She would star as the protagonist, Hedy Lamarr, the actress and inventor, Deadline reports.
It sounds as though the project is a special one for the actress, who would executive produce alongside her husband, producer Jaron Varsano; "The Affair" co-creator Sarah Treem; and Warren Littlefield ("The Handmaid's Tale"). Deadline reports that Gadot wanted to bring Lamarr's story to screen, and Treem came up with how to tackle the project. Treem hasn't reached a deal yet, either, but she is reportedly in the negotiations phase.
The story is said to follow Lamarr's "life and career," per Deadline. That should certainly offer a wealth of material. The actress and inventor was born in what was then Czechoslovakia, and she became a film star there before escaping her marriage and moving to France. Later, she ended up in Hollywood after meeting the then-MGM studio head, Louis B. Mayer, in London and again found acting success. And as if she didn't accomplish enough, she managed to co-develop technology that was a precursor to GPS and WiFi.
It sounds like it could be quite the limited series, especially with Gadot on board.
