HOLLYWOOD: “Wonder Woman” star Gal Gadot will produce and star in “Irena Sendler,” based on the Polish heroine who saved thousands of Jewish children during the Holocaust.
“Irena Sendler” has been set up with Warner Bros through Gadot’s newly formed Pilot Wave with producing partner and husband Jaron Varsano. Marc Platt will also produce. Justine Juel Gillmer, whose credits include “Harry Haft,” will be writing the screenplay, based on Sendler’s work in the Polish underground in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. Sendler worked with dozens of others to smuggle out children, provide them with false identification and place them with families.
