Gal Gadot is returning to "The Fast and the Furious" action films. The Israeli actress and her content agency, ADD, signed a new contract recently with Universal Studios to participate in the seventh film in the series.
In light of Gadot's previous work commitments in Israel, the extent of her role has yet to be determined. Sources involved in the negotiations believe, however, that Universal is interested in securing Gadot for eighth film in the series as well, in a leading role.
Gadot was first cast for "The Fast and the Furious" series in the fourth film, which was released in April 2009, where she played one of the leading roles as Gisele Harabo. The movie's good reviews and impressive achievements of the film in the box office prompted its star and co-producer, Vin Diesel, to extend the contract with Gadot to the next two films in the series.
The end of the sixth film led to speculations over Gadot's future in "The Fast and the Furious," after her character was seen flying off the wing of a plane into the darkness after saving her partner. The production asked Gadot not to comment on the fate of her character, and it now seems the rumors of her death were premature.
"For understandable reasons I cannot really discuss the issue," Gadot said last week, "but I am always glad to be part of the 'Fast and Furious' family. I'll accept whatever happens."
