It’s what Agent Stone ?
After Red Notice (2021), in which she co-starred with Dwayne Johnson and Ryan Reynolds, Gal Gadot is back on Netflix with Agent Stone. This time it is a film that is resolutely focused on action. The interpreter of Wonder Woman plays an MI6 agent, Rachel Stone, who has just joined an elite team led by Agent Parker (Jamie Dornan). Only, Rachel has another employer.
Indeed, she is also part of a secret organization which has with a powerful artificial intelligence able to collect all the data of a person and thus predict his actions. An AI that is reminiscent of the “Entity” in Mission Impossible: Dead Reckoning Part 1. As in the film worn by Tom Cruise, this new technology will threaten the world. Because a hacker will want to seize this weapon. But Agent Stone will obviously be there to try to stop him…
Gal Gadot at the heart of the action
Gal Gadot therefore embodies Rachel Stone, a character she describes with many contradictions. Because Rachel is an incredible secret agent while having trouble respecting the rules. This allows the actress to make it fun enough when she’s not in action. An action which is obviously very present in the film and which allowed the actress to attend (and sometimes to participate) at several waterfalls.
During filming, the actress was surprised by the physical level she was facing. Training and preparation went on for months before shooting. But as she said in an interview (via Tele-Leisure), do all of these things, including hand-to-hand combatremains very pleasant for her.
I like hand-to-hand combat. It’s like dancing. I was a dancer for many, many years. So for me doing all these things is like a dance. It’s about timing, and it’s about talking with the body.
In addition to Gal Gadot, we find in the cast Jamie Dornan (the saga fifty shades), British actress Alia Bhatt, Matthias Schweighöfer (Army of Thieves) or even Sophie Okonedo who had already met Gal Gadot on the set of Death on the Nile (2022). Agent Stone was directed by Tom Harper (The Aeronauts) and is to be discovered on Netflix since August 11.
