The star of the Wonder Woman movie is reportedly threatening to quit the movie series unless Warner Brothers cuts ties with a Hollywood producer accused of sexually harassing multiple women.
Gal Gadot, the star of “Wonder Woman,” allegedly told Warner Brothers that the company would need to cut its contract with Hollywood producer Brett Ratner if they wanted her to return for the next movie installment, an unnamed source told Page Six Saturday.
Ratner’s production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment aided in the production of Wonder Woman out of a deal it has with Warner Brothers, despite the contract with Warner Brothers ending in 2018 due to the harassment allegations against Ratner. Gadot reportedly said she doesn’t want Ratner to be making money off of a movie about female empowerment.
“She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women,” the source told Page Six.
Six women, including actresses Ellen Page and Olivia Munn, accused Ratner of sexually harassing them over the years. Page, a gay woman, alleged Ratner told an older woman to “fuck her to make her realize she’s gay,” while Munn accused Ratner of masturbating in front of her. Ratner has denied all allegations through his lawyer.
Ratner and Gadot did not return comment to Page Six, while a Warner’s Brother rep told Page Six it was “false.” The company also told The Daily Caller News Foundation that it was “false.”
