People associate the name of Israeli actress Gal Gadot with the Fast and Furious franchise and her upcoming role as Wonder Woman in Zack Snyder’s Batman vs Superman movie. However there is other recent news that is related to the actress and the news is that she was cast for a role in the upcoming thriller “Triple Nine”.
Although the subject of the movie doesn’t offer to the viewers something new and intriguing it will undoubted grab their attention due to the fact that an A-list lineup of actors has been cast for the movie. Undoubtedly the most famous and well reputed name that will take part in the movie is Kate Winslet. Also the lovable Aaron Paul star of the television show “Breaking Bad” will have a role in the movie. Other highly known actors that will play a role in the film are Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave and 2012), Case Affleck (Tower Heist, Gone Baby Gone and Out of the Furnace) younger brother of Ben Affleck, Teresa Palmer (I am Number 4, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and Bedtime Stories) and Michael B. Jorden (Fruitvale Station, Chronicle, That Awkward Moment and Friday Night Lights).
And while many critics and viewers doubts the credentials of Gadot to play Wonder Woman they do not place any doubt on her ability to play a role in “Triple Nine” which is a movie about a corrupt police officer and a group of gang members that plan to assassinate a police officer in order to pull their biggest heist. Nobody questions Gal Gadot about her role in this movie because for one she has already played in a movie with a similar plotline and two she has already played in three movies (Fast & Furious, Fast Five, Fast and Furious Six) that have a first class cast of actors.
Just like Zack Snyder, John Hillcoat who is the director of the movie believes that Gal Gadot is a talented actress that will be able to play her role in an excellent and convincing manner. He does believe so because despite of the fact that Gal Gadot is a woman with gentle features, she is tougher than she looks due to the fact that she has military training and a wide knowledge on different weapons. This makes the Israeli actress the ideal candidate for action and thriller movies.
Also several movie critics believe that this movie is the ideal scene for Gadot to display to the world that she is indeed ready for the much demanding role of Wonder Woman. Some critics go even further in their comments and say that “Triple Nine” is the ideal rehearsal for Gadot before the shooting of the highly publicized Batman vs Superman movie. Whether the movie experts and critics are right or wrong only time will tell but one thing is certain and that is that 2015 and 2016 will be the two years that will either propel the Israeli actress into the stratosphere and make her one of the few A-list actresses of Hollywood or will bury her career and condemn her to secondary roles. We sincerely hope that the latter scenario will only remain as a possible as we firmly believe that Gal Gadot is a charming and talented actress that deserves stellar success.
