Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot is now set to headline a remake of the Alfred Hitchcock film classic, To Catch A Thief, for Paramount Pictures.
Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot is currently set to headline an all-new remake of the 1955 Alfred Hitchcock film classic, To Catch A Thief. The original film starred Academy Award nominated actor, Cary Grant, and Academy Award-winning actress, Grace Kelly. The plot for the 1955 film revolved around a former thief who must find a way to prove his innocence after being suspected of returning to his former criminal habits.
According to Variety, Gadot will star in a new version of To Catch A Thief for Paramount Pictures. Eileen Jones, best known for her writing on Fox’s Prodigal Son, will write the script for the upcoming remake. Jones was most recently tapped to write a Margot Robbie vehicle for New Line called Highwayman. Neal Moritz, the producer behind the globally popular The Fast and Furious franchise, will be producing the To Catch A Thief remake. Gadot will also be producing with Jaron Varsano through their production company, Pilot Wave. Paramount Pictures is returning to set up the film, as they did the original.
Plot details for the Hitchcock Cary Grant remake, and for which character Gadot will be playing in it, are both currently unknown. Gadot’s schedule is filling up quickly as her other two upcoming high-profile film projects, Cleopatra and Snow White, have not yet begun filming. To Catch A Thief is currently in early development and is likely to begin production sometime after those two films are wrapped. Gadot will next be seen in Kenneth Branagh’s Death On The Nile, which releases February 11 in theaters.
