Back in October, Deadline revealed that Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot was in talks to lead director Justin Kurzel‘s Nazi hunter thriller titled Ruin. And we now have a bit of a production update to share.
A nameless ex-Nazi captain navigates the ruins of post-WWII Germany. Determined to atone for his crimes during the war, he hunts down the surviving members of his former SS Death Squad.
Omega Underground has learned Ruin is now expected to begin rolling cameras sometime in November.
Kurzel is best known for his films Snowtown, Macbeth, and Assassin’s Creed.
The start does seem workable with Gal’s schedule as she is expected to finish filming Wonder Woman 1984 sometime in the fall and her action film Red Notice co-starring with Dwayne Johnson won’t begin filming until April.
According to Deadline, Ruin had originally planned on starting production before the Wonder Woman sequel, but that didn’t obviously happen.
Interesting enough, there is a bit of a Marvel Cinematic Universe connection to the film.
Ruin’s script was penned by brother screenwriting duo of Ryan Firpo and Matt Firpo, who were recently hired by Marvel Studios to write a script for The Eternals movie.
I wouldn’t be terribly shocked if Michael Fassbender took a role considering he has starred in Justin Kurzel’s last two films.
A release date has yet to be set.
