Gal Gadot won't do Wonder Woman sequel if Brett Ratner is involved

Gal Gadot, for her part, backed out of an appearance where she was supposed to present the Tree of Life award to Ratner at a dinner in his honor.

The article also notes that RatPac Dune Entertainment - Ratner's motion picture production and financing company - isn't now set to finance the sequel.

The most recent Hollywood male to have come under fire however is producer Brett Ratner, whose well-known work ranges from the Rush Hour series, X-Men and Horrible Bosses, to his most recent project, Wonder Woman 2. But reports are swirling that star Gadot has yet to officially sign her contract for the second Wonder Woman movie because executive producer Brett Ratner is still attached to the film.

"She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops", a source told Page Six.

The allegations against Ratner began when Henstridge and five other women accused Ratner of a range of sexual harassment and misconduct.

Earlier this month, Gadot posted on Instagram: "Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable!" Nonetheless, nervous Hollywood film studios are taking note of such allegations and cutting ties with a growing list of male Hollywood bigwigs and stars who find themselves under increasing attack for sexual predation.

After the LA Times's report on Ratner was published, Warner Bros. announced it was severing ties with him and RatPac-Dune Entertainment, but it's now unclear how that might affect the Wonder Woman sequel, or what kind of deal is already in place.

Separately, The Los Angeles Times reported that the Burbank-based studio will not renew this deal with Ratner beyond 2018. I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out.

While Ratner's company likely already received a financial windfall from the original movie, the sequel that is set to start Gadot with director Patty Jenkins also returning will undoubtedly be one of the biggest films of the year when it's released. He looked at a woman standing next to me, ten years my senior, pointed to me and said: "You should f-k her to make her realize she's gay".

If Warner Bros.is smart, they'll ditch Ratner quicker than the Millennium Falcon making the Kessel Run.
