Gal Gadot Cleopatra role confirmed.
Gadot succeeds Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011), who embodied the Egyptian Queen in 1963, under the direction of Joseph Mankiewicz.
Gal Gadot successfully played “Wonder Woman” (Wonder Woman) and is considered to be an idol Cleopatra. The script will be written by Laeta Kalogridis, the screenwriter of Shutter Island.
Gadot will play the last ruler of the Ptolemy Kingdom of Egypt. This iconic character is played by actresses Claudette Colbert and Elizabeth Taylor.
But some people are not as enthusiastic about the cast of Gal Gadot Cleopatra, as Gadot herself. There is talk of “whitewashing” on social media – a criticism of the fact that non-white characters are played by white actors or actresses.
Some people suggest casting the role of Cleopatra with an African or Arab actress, instead of the Israeli Gal Gadot Cleopatra. The Egyptian queen Cleopatra came from an ancient Greek ruling family – the Ptolemy dynasty – and was born in Egypt in 69 BC.
The film will be produced by Paramount Pictures and directed by Patty Jenkins, the director of Wonder Woman. At the same time, Gadot’s new project “Wonder Woman 1984” was postponed to December 25, 2020.
Previously, various rumors about Cleopatra movies dragged down actresses such as Lady Gaga and Angelina Jolie. It is not clear when the Gal Gadot Cleopatra film will begin production.
