“Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot will produce and star in a film about a Christian woman who helped save Jewish children from the Nazi Holocaust. Gadot and her husband, Jaron Varsano, have teamed up with the production company Pilot Wave, and their debut project will be the fact-based historical thriller “Irena Sendler.”
Gadot will star as Sendler in the film, which “tells the harrowing story of a woman’s defiant stand against Nazi Germany’s occupation of Poland and the incredible network she developed to care for and save 2,500 Jewish children from the Warsaw ghetto.”
Justine Juel Gillmer is writing the screenplay, while Gadot and Varsano will produce alongside Marc Platt. Gadot recently shared the story on her Instagram account.
