Priyanka Chopra is going to star in the Hollywood movie, Cowboy Ninja Viking, opposite Chris Pratt. The movie is going to be directed by Michelle Maclaren, from a screenplay by Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick and David Reese. The movie is about a counter-intelligence unit organized by psychotherapist Dr. Sebastian Ghislain, who transforms agents known as Triplets, a reference to multiple personalities. It seems to be clear now, that Priyanka might have left her Bollywood project, Bharat, starring Salman Khan and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar to nab this movie.
There had been many reports that the actress had stepped out of the project because she was going to marry her fiance, American actor and singer, Nick Jonas, but now it seems that her decision was entirely based on her professional ambitions. Chris Pratt is one of the most popular and successful leading men of Hollywood, having starred in the money making franchises like Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers, and Jurassic Park.
The movie is currently in pre-production. Priyanka is also signed on to star in Shonali Bose’s drama movie, The Sky is Pink, opposite Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim and is going to begin shooting for it soon. Meanwhile, Bharat has gotten its leading lady in the absence of PC, as Katrina Kaif, Salman’s most famed on-screen partner is going to play the role of the female lead in the movie.
