UPDATE: 

A spokesman for Warner Bros. has told Business Insider that the Page Six story is not true. The tabloid story claimed Gal Gadot would not do the “Wonder Woman” sequel if Brett Ratner, who’s at the center of multiple sexual assault allegations, is involved.

“It’s false,” the spokesman said.

Deadline reported Nov. 1 that Warner Bros.’ first-look deal with Ratner will not be renewed. The Los Angeles Times reported that RatPac-Dune Entertainment’s co-financing agreement with Warner Bros. is set to expire in 2018, citing sources that did not want to be named. “Wonder Woman 2” is set to be released in Nov. 2019.

 

ORIGINAL STORY:

“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot has reportedly said she will not proceed with a sequel to the 2017 movie that made her a household name unless Warner Bros. cancels its co-financing arrangement with filmmaker Brett Ratner, whose company RatPac Entertainment co-produced the first film, according to Page Six.

Recently, “Juno” and “Inception” star Ellen Page accused Ratner of "outing" her while preparing to shoot “X-Men: The Last Stand.” Page, 30, was 18 at the time and had not yet publicly come out as a gay woman.

Regarding Gadot’s stance, a source told Page Six: “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.”
