In her next project, Israel’s Gal Gadot is set to step into the shoes of one of cinema’s most famous actresses.

US media reported this week that the “Wonder Woman” star has been cast in a remake of Alfred Hitchkock classic “To Catch a Thief,” portraying a character originally played by Grace Kelly.

In the 1955 romantic thriller written by John Michael Hayes, Kelly played the role of Frances Stevens, the daughter of a wealthy widow who is the love interest of main character John Robie (played by Cary Grant), a retired jewel thief trying to save his reputation by catching an impostor preying on wealthy tourists.

In addition to playing Frances, Gadot will also be producing the film along with her partner Jaron Varsano via their company, Pilot Wave.

The remake of the film is in its early development stage, with Eileen Jones tapped as screenwriter.

Gadot is also set to play the Evil Queen in a new Disney production of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.”
