Netflix espionage thriller Heart of Stone will film in the UK with Gal Gadot starring and producing.
The film comes from Skydance Media and Pilot Wave (Gadot’s production company) and is directed by Tom Harper, best known for The Aeronauts and Wild Rose.
Little is known about the plotline; Harper will be calling the shots from a screenplay by Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder.
Producing alongside Gadot are: David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Don Granger for Skydance, Jaron Varsano (Gadot’s husband and co-founder of Pilot Wave), Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis.
The UK is enjoying a purple patch in production, with filming having continued through the previous two Covid lockdowns, while adhering to strict industry guidelines and supported by the government's backstop device, the Film and TV Production Restart Scheme. The scheme has been credited with aiding 640 projects in the past year.
Gadot is also lined up to reprise her title role in the third instalment of the Wonder Woman franchise, currently in development at Warner with Patty Jenkins due to be back in the director’s chair.
