HOLLYWOOD: Gal Gadot is to voice a street racer in the ‘Wreck-It Ralph’ sequel.
The ‘Wonder Woman’ star has signed up to play Shank in the Disney animated movie, ‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’.
She said in a statement: ”Shank is amazing at driving cars and has this bad-girl vibe to her. But as the movie goes on, you realise how fun, wise, and warm she really is on the inside, which is what I like most about her.”
Whilst director Rich Moore added: ”She is the coolest character in this world of ‘Slaughter Race.’ Shank’s lived a lot, she’s seen a lot, yet she’s got nothing but kindness in her heart – that’s the duality of that character.”
‘Wreck It Ralph’s sequel was revealed in 2016, with John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman – who plays Vanellope von Scheetz, – director Rich Moore, producer Clark Spencer, and the production’s writer Phil Johnston all to return to their roles.
Speaking about the follow-up to the award-winning 2012 hit production, Moore said: ”From the moment we started working on the first ‘Wreck-It Ralph,’ we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters.”
