Ratner, whose RatPac-Dune Entertainment was one of the co-producers of the film, will not be bankrolling the second installment. Multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against the Rush Hour director had surfaced in a report in the Los Angeles Times.

Gadot, who is known as someone who is very vocal about women's rights had earlier backed out of a dinner event honouring Ratner. She was supposed to hand him an award, but backed out after the director was accused of sexual harassment. A source close to PageSix had told the publication, "She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man ­accused of sexual misconduct against women."
