With the Patty Jenkins-directed sequel to Wonder Woman on the horizon, Justice League movies, and an appearance in the spinoff Flashpoint, it's a wonder Gal Gadot has time for anything else.

But Deadline reports that the actress is now in early talks to join Bradley Cooper in his intriguing new supernatural drama Deeper, about a failed astronaut who comes face-to-face with “mysterious forces” that are found at the bottom of the sea.

The movie tells the story of the former space man delving into a newly-discovered oceanic trench, which is claimed to be the “lowest point on Earth,” and where it seems some phantom inhabitants are at play.

This is the first non-DCEU movie that Gadot's been attached to since her big solo debut as Diana Prince, and interestingly, it looks set to contain a sci-fi/fantasy element to it. The premise of the film already sounds like a distant cousin of James Cameron's 1989 sci-fi drama, The Abyss. David S. Goyer, no stranger to sci-fi or DC, is set to produce, with Hungarian filmmaker Kornél Mundruczó on directing duties.

It's no surprise to see that Gadot is now an in-demand name in Hollywood. Wonder Woman has smashed multiple box office records since it was released earlier this year, grossing more than $411 million in the U.S. and almost $819 million worldwide. Prior to her smash breakout role, Gadot joined the Fast & Furious franchise in 2015’s Furious 7 playing Gisele, and in 2016 starred opposite Jon Hamm in the action comedy Keeping Up with the Joneses.
