Washington: Gal Gadot is all set to partner with former Warner Bros. executive Sue Kroll for a movie based on Peter Kornbluh’s Politico article ‘My Dearest Fidel’: An ABC Journalist’s Secret Liaison With Fidel Castro.’
The ‘Wonder Woman’ star, who is co-producing ‘My Dearest Fidel’ with Kroll and husband Jaron Varsano, might also star in the film.
It will portray how ABC journalist Lisa Howard engaged in what Kornbluh described as “intimate diplomacy” with Castro, Cuba’s revolutionary leader.
“I’m so excited to bring this story to life with great creative partners in Gal, Jaron, Peter and Chris,” Kroll said Wednesday in a statement, as reported by the Hollywood Reporter.
“This is a remarkable true story, anchored by an incredible woman, and lends itself to a dramatic and thrilling cinematic experience.”
Gadot, on the other hand, said, “When I first read Peter’s article, I was entranced by his thrilling account of a complicated, fascinating woman in the midst of a high-stakes, real-life drama. I knew immediately that I had to be involved creatively with telling Lisa Howard’s story, and am thrilled to be producing this film with Sue.” (ANI)
