After the release of “Wonder Woman 1984” to HBO Max and theaters, actress Gal Gadot isn’t slowing down for a minute. She’s already announced her next project, which itself has found a home on competing streaming service Netflix.
Not much is known about the film, outside of Gadot’s being the lead and that “Heart of Stone” is some type of espionage thriller. It’ll be helmed by Tom Harper, who directed Felicity Jones in the hot air balloon adventure, “The Aernoauts,” as well as Jessie Buckley in the indie country musical, “Wild Rose.” Greg Rucka and Allison Schroeder will write the script. Pre-production has just started, hence the silence on any further details.
Giant streamer Netflix was the second largest TV group in Europe by revenue in 2020, according to new data from research firm Ampere Analysis.

However, with a 6.1% share, Netflix has leapfrogged German public broadcaster ARD. U.K. broadcaster BBC is in fourth place with 4.2% and the Canal Plus Group fifth with 3.2%. Amazon Prime Video is in 13th position with 2%.

Between The Witcher, Castlevania, and the upcoming Assassin’s Creed and Resident Evil TV shows that are currently in production, Netflix has become a hotbed of content that is based on popular video game franchises. Now, a fresh rumor suggests that this trend could be continuing once again with a new series centered around one of gaming’s most iconic fantasy properties.
A new report has stated that Netflix is looking into partnering with Bethesda to create a new series based on The Elder Scrolls series of video games. First started back in 1994, The Elder Scrolls has been one of Bethesda’s longest-running franchises with standout entries in the mainline series including Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim. When it comes to what the show would entail, it would be of the live-action variety. Netflix is also said to want this show to be just as massive as The Witcher if it were to come to fruition.
