The wonderful Wonder Woman duo is teaming up again for a Cleopatra epic. 

Gal Gadot will star as the eponymous heroine in the Patty Jenkins helmed feature. 

The Israeli actress announced her casting on Twitter writing, “As you might have heard I teamed up with @PattyJenks and @LKalogridis to bring the story of Cleopatra, Queen of Egypt, to the big screen in a way she’s never been seen before. To tell her story for the first time through women’s eyes, both behind and in front of the camera.”

Paramount Pictures has won the film following a bidding war reportedly between Universal, Warner Bros, Netflix, and Apple. 

The Egyptian queen’s tale was previously portrayed on the big screen by the iconic Elizabeth Taylor in the 1963 Joseph Mankiewicz-directed film of the same name.
