to catch a thief remake

Gal Gadot has been quite busy. She ended 2020 with the release of Wonder Woman 1984. Entered 2021 co-starring alongside Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds in Netflix’s original film, Red Notice. Now, the buzz is starting for her next starring role in Death On The Nile. While they are still preparing for Wonder Woman 3, it seems she has decided to add one more thriller to her list of upcoming projects.

Deadline has revealed that she will star and produce a remake of the 1955 thriller To Catch A Thief. The original was directed by the legendary Alfred Hitchcock, and it starred Cary Grant as the titular thief. At the time, the incomparable Grace Kelly was part of the project as his love interest. She is producing the project with her partner Jaron Varsano through their Pilot Wave banner. There is no word who she is playing, but there is a chance she is a gender-swapped version of Grant‘s original character.

That’s not all though, as the critically-acclaimed Prodigal Son writer Eileen Jones has been hired to write the remake. This news comes on the heels of her most recent pitch, Highwayman, which got picked up by New Line. She wrote the project alongside Margot Robbie and will be produced by Christina Hobson. The project seems to be in its early stages. So, we might not get an update for some time as Gadot has quite a few other projects she might prioritize.
