Israeli actress Gal Gadot is in negotiations to star in a post-WWII revenge thriller to be directed by Justin Kurzel, Hollywood news website The Tracking Board reported Thursday.

The Mad River Pictures film will center on a former Nazi captain who plots to kill his former team of SS officers in Germany in repentance of his own crimes. Gadot's role in the film, the report goes on to say, is yet unknown and actor Christian Bale is considering playing the lead.

The Israeli superstar recently hosted Saturday Night Live and is slated for the Wonder Woman sequel next year. Last week, Gadot appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," when she publicly had some firsts: tasting a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and playing a game of charades with Fallon, Miley Cyrus and The Roots' Tariq Trotter.
