The producer is under fire as multiple women have come forward with claims of sexual misconduct.
Just two weeks after Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot publicly backed out of an awards dinner where she was scheduled to give producer Brett Ratner an award, Page 6, is reporting that Gadot is refusing to return for Wonder Woman 2 unless Ratner is no longer involved with the production.
Gadot is not under contract to appear in the sequel to Wonder Woman, so she has a tremendous amount of clout. Apparently, she is using that power in an attempt to get rid of serial sexual predator Ratner.
RatPac-Dune Entertainment, Ratner’s production company, co-financed Wonder Woman as part of a deal they had with Warner Bros. Wonder Woman was a gigantic hit and has earned more than $400 million so far, and Ratner has made an enormous amount of money as a result.
“Brett made a lot of money from the success of Wonder Woman, thanks to his company having helped finance the first movie. Now Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him,” said Page 6’s anonymous source.
Ratner — who will likely never be allowed to live within 600 yards of an elementary school again — was recently accused of sexual misconduct by six women in an article in the LA Times. The accusers include actress Olivia Munn (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Natasha Henstridge (Species)
“He walked out … with his belly sticking out, no pants on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other,” Munn said. “And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated.”
Munn had previously described her encounter with Ratner in her 2010 book, Suck It, Wonder Woman! The Misadventures of a Hollywood Geek, but she left out the name and other identifying details. But Ratner — a pile of human excrement that somehow wished to be a real boy — boasted that he was the director Munn was talking about in an appearance on Attack of the Show, a program she used to host.
“I used to date Olivia Munn, I will be honest with everybody here. When she was ‘Lisa.’ That was the problem. She wasn’t Asian back then. … I banged her a few times … but I forgot her.” Ratner later admitted that Munn never had sex with him — likely because he’s a horrible human being who looks like the perp in roughly half the episodes of Law & Order: SVU.
Henstridge’s encounter with Ratner happened decades ago, when he was an up-and-coming music video director in his early 20s and she was a 19-year-old aspiring model. Henstridge had fallen asleep on Ratner’s couch while watching a movie with friends. When she woke up, everyone else had left and Ratner blocked her from leaving and forced her to perform oral sex.
Ratner — who we assume owns a nondescript panel van — also outed lesbian actress Ellen Page when she was just a teen, and is currently suing a woman who accused him of rape for libel (not one of the famous ones who would have the resources to fight, back of course.)
If Gadot manages to get Ratner kicked off this movie, Wonder Woman will have won her greatest victory yet.
But the war continues.
