 Gal Gadot attends The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute benefit gala celebrating the opening of the "Camp: Notes on Fashion" exhibition on Monday, May 6, 2019, in New York. 

(JTA) — Gal Gadot will channel a real-life wonder woman as the star of a blockbuster film about the Egyptian queen Cleopatra.

The Israeli star will work on the film alongside “Wonder Woman” director Patty Jenkins.

Gadot’s husband Yaron Varsano and the couple’s Pilot Wave production company will be involved in the project as well. Universal, Warner Bros, Netflix and Apple also vied for the rights to the film, according to the report.

The most famous Cleopatra film starred Elizabeth Taylor and won four Academy Awards at the 1964 Oscars after being nominated for a total of nine.

Gadot currently is filming “Red Notice,” the most expensive Netflix feature film to date, with Ryan Reynolds and Dwayne Johnson.
