Plus: Scarlett Johansson offered 'Ghost in the Shell' lead
'Wonder Woman's' Gal Gadot may join 'Ben-Hur' remake
Gal Gadot -- soon to be seen as Wonder Woman -- may soon be moving from superheroes to Bible heroes, if she can even find the time.
The actress is reportedly in early negotiations for the female lead of Esther in Paramount and MGM's latest version of the Biblical epic "Ben-Hur," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Jack Huston is already on board as the titular Jewish prince who is betrayed by a friend and sold into slavery, where he must fight his way to freedom in the early days of Jesus Christ.
Toby Kebbell and Morgan Freeman have also been cast.
Timur Bekmambetov ("Wanted") is directing the movie based on the 1880 Lew Wallace novel "Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ," which was famouly adapted into a 1959 film which starred Charlton Heston and won 11 Oscars.
Gadot will first don Wonder Woman's boots in 2016's "Batman V Superman," and will re-appear as the DC heroine in a solo "Wonder Woman" film and the two-part "Justice League."
With "Ben-Hur" aiming to shoot early next year in Europe, Gadot should be able to squeeze it in between DC movies.
Additionally, Gadot recently wrapped John Hillcoat’s "Triple Nine," co-starring Kate Winslet, and Ariel Vromen's "Criminal," with Ryan Reynolds.
