Gal Gadot to receive prestigious Rising Star Award

Gal Gadot to receive prestigious Rising Star Award

"They can't have a movie rooted in women's empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women", the source added.

The report suggested that Gadot wants Ratner cut off from Wonder Woman II.

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****'.

Ratner, the high-profile director of the Rush Hour series and X-Men: The Last Stand, is the latest in a slew of Hollywood heavy hitters to become ensnared in sexual misconduct allegations.

Earlier this month, Warner Bros. severed its ties with Ratner amid multiple sexual harassment claims made against him.

Ratner's company Rat Pac-Dune Entertainment was one of the financers of the first Wonder Woman movie, which was a global success, earning $400 million.

"Now Gadot is saying she won't sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him", a source for the website states.

Following the first accusations, Brett Ratner has since stepped down.

According to PageSix, Gal Gadot recently backed out and refused to go to a dinner honoring Brett Ratner where she was due to present him with an award.

The Israeli-born star has been vocal about her stance on sexual harassment in Hollywood writing on Instagram: "Bullying and sexual harassment is unacceptable!"

Gadot will be seen next in Warner Bros./DC's "Justice League" alongside Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray fisher and Henry Cavill. Gal Gadot posted. "I stand by all the courageous women confronting their fears and speaking out".

"We are all united in this time of change". Tweeting her reaction to the news, the director said: "I am extremely distressed to read these bad allegations against Brett Ratner".

"Gadot will reprise her role as Wonder Woman in Justice League", out in theaters November 17 as well as a Wonder Woman sequel set for release sometime in 2019.
