Gal Gadot announced on Friday that she has yet another big movie role coming up – in Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet.
“I’m so excited to finally announce that I am playing a character named Shank in Disney’s #RalphBreaksTheInternet hitting theaters this November!” Gadot wrote on Twitter. “Such an amazing experience to be a part of this project with such great creators and cast! Welcome to Slaughter Race!”
The film, which is slated to premiere on November 21, also stars John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman and Jack McBrayer. It is a sequel to 2012’s Wreck-it-Ralph, which grossed more than $470 million worldwide.
Gadot’s character, Shank, is a tough girl who loves driving cars and is part of an online racing game called Slaughter Race.
The Rosh Ha’ayin native has been lining up project after project in recent months. Though she is currently filming the sequel to Wonder Woman, she is also near a deal to play Hedy Lamarr on Showtime, set to executive produce and potentially star in a film about Fidel Castro, and will appear alongside Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in an art heist comedy due out in 2020.
