Priyanka Chopra is on a roll these days. The actress, who shot to fame internationally after the rapturous success of her American TV series ‘Quantico’, is not in any hurry to leave foreign shores, it seems. PC is hogging all the limelight these days for a plethora of reasons. The latest reason the entire media is writing about her is that the talented actress has just landed yet another big opportunity in Hollywood. Yes, if reports are to be believed, Priyanka Chopra has been signed to play the female lead in an upcoming Hollywood biggie, titled ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’. The actress gets to romance one of the hottest Hollywood men Chris Pratt in the movie as he plays the male lead opposite her.
To be made under the banner of Universal and produced by Guymon Casady and Ben Forkner alongside Michael De Luca, Mark Gordon and Pratt, ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ will be helmed by Michelle MacLaren of ‘Game Of Thrones’ fame. The film has been written by Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick and David Reese. Talking about its plotline, ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ will, as per reports, revolve around a counter-intelligence unit set up by psychotherapist Dr Sebastian Ghislain, who transforms agents known as Triplets, a reference to multiple personalities. Pratt plays an agent in the flick.
Talking about Priyanka Chopra’s projects in Bollywood, the actress has only one Hindi film in her pockets – ‘The Sky Is Pink’. To be helmed by Shonali Bose, the movie also features Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim in pivotal roles. The actress was also playing the female lead in Salman Khan’s upcoming film ‘Bharat’. However, she opted out of the project at the eleventh hour, surprising one and all.
For the uninitiated, ‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ will not be Priyanka Chopra’s debut film in Hollywood as she has previously starred in Dwayne Johnson’s ‘Baywatch’ and Jim Parsons and Claire Danes’ ‘A Kid Like Jake’.
‘Cowboy Ninja Viking’ is scheduled to arrive on June 28, 2019.
