Priyanka Chopra Jonas has joined the Netflix action fantasy feature We Can Be Heroes, which is written, directed, and produced by Robert Rodriguez. The story revolves around alien invaders kidnapping Earth’s superheroes, and their children learning to work together to save their parents and the world.
“Christian Slater, Boyd Holbrook, Sung Kang, and Pedro Pascal will also star in the film. After Isn’t it Romantic, this will be her second project on Netflix. Rodriguez recently directed the film Alita: Battle Angel, and this is a big boost to PC’s career in the West,” our source reveals.
Aside from the Netflix film, Priyanka will also produce and star in an untitled wedding comedy set in India that is co-produced by Mindy Kaling and Dan Goor for Universal. She is also slated to work on a Ma Sheela biopic, which was announced by Oscar winner Barry Levinson.
On the Indian front, the actress will appear in The Sky Is Pink, based on motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhary. The film is slated for a world premiere at The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in September this year. The Gala Presentation film, which Priyanka has also co-produced, is the only official selection from Asia this year.
Her last film appearance was in American romantic comedy Isn’t It Romantic which co-stars Rebel Wilson, Liam Hemsworth, and Adam Devine. Additionally, she starred in the family drama A Kid Like Jake with Claire Danes, Jim Parsons, and Octavia Spencer.
Under her Purple Pebble Pictures banner, the Barfi actress has produced several acclaimed features including Paani, Ventilator, Pahuna: The Little Visitors and Firebrand, the latter released earlier this year on Netflix.
