Gal Gadot to receive prestigious Rising Star Award

Warner Bros. reviewing deal with Brett Ratner's company after sexual misconduct allegations

Warner Bros. reviewing deal with Brett Ratner's company after sexual misconduct allegations

RatPac-Dune Entertainment, Ratner's company that he formed with Trump henchman / Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, helped to co-finance the first Wonder Woman and has been involved in pretty much every major Warner Bros. film in the past couple of years.

Israeli actress Gal Gadot has reportedly refused to sign onto a sequel for the box office hit "Wonder Woman" unless distributor Warner Bros. cuts its financing deal on the film with producer Brett Ratner, who has been accused of sexual harassment.

"[Gadot] knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops". A source in Warner Bros. told Page Six that Gadot will not have "a movie rooted in women's empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women". For others such as Harvey Weinstein, it's meant firing from the company he helped to build with his brother and expulsion from a number of professional bodies including AMPAS, the governing body of the Academy Awards.

The movie, co-financed by Ratner's production company RatPac-Dune Entertainment and Warner Brothers, became the highest-earning film directed by a woman in its first weekend at the United States box office.

Earlier this month, Gadot posted on Instagram: "Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable!"

"I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out". Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat.

Ratner, who has directed big-ticket films like Rush Hour and X Men: The Last Stand, faces sexual harassment allegations from Natasha Henstridge and Olivia Munn. The Film Awards Gala, hosted by Mary Hart, takes place January 2nd at the Palm Springs Convention Center with the fest taking place January 4-15.

On Friday, actress Ellen Page came out with a slew of allegations against Brett Ratner for outing her as a lesbian and saying degrading things about women such as commenting that a woman on set had a 'flappy p****'. He also added that the theme of the film is especially apt for today where we talk about empowering everyone irrespective of gender and age. It was the highest-grossing film directed by a woman and the highest-grossing superhero origin film domestically.
