A few hours after it was announced that Gal Gadot will get her own standalone Wonder Woman movie in 2017, THR bring word that the actress is in early negotiations for the female lead role in ‘Ben-Hur’ – Paramount and Timur Bekmambetov’s new adaptation of the 1880 Lew Wallace novel ‘Ben-Hur: A Tale Of The Christ,’ which in its time outsold every book but ‘The Bible’ until it was eclipsed by ‘Gone With The Wind.’ Jack Huston will play the title character in the film, with Morgan Freeman playing the role of Ildarin, the man who teaches Ben-Hur to become a champion-caliber chariot racer. Toby Kebbell is playing the antagonist role of Messala, and, if her deal makes, Gadot will play Esther, a slave with whom Ben-Hur is in love.
