Gadot To Star In Fidel Castro Drama

“Wonder Woman” actress Gal Gadot is set to produce and star in a film based on historian Peter Kornbluh’s Politico article “My Dearest Fidel” for Warner Bros. Pictures and Kroll & Co. Entertainment.

“Narcos” co-creator Chris Brancato will write the adaptation of Kornbluh’s article which deals with how ABC journalist Lisa Howard, the network’s first full-time female reporter, engaged in ‘intimate diplomacy’ with Cuban leader Fidel Castro in the 1960s.

She became a key asset in the establishment of a top-secret channel between Washington and Havana to discuss reconciliation after the Cuban Missile Crisis. Gadot, Sue Kroll and Jaron Varsano will produce.
