31 May – Not a week after the release of her very first Hollywood movie, "Baywatch", Priyanka Chopra is already in talks to be in two more movies: "A Kid Like Jake" and "Isn't It Romantic".
"A Kid Like Jake" is an indie film starring Jim Parsons, Octavia Spencer and Claire Danes. Helmed by Silas Howard, the movie is about two parents who want to apply their gender variant child into a public kindergarten, since they can't afford private school tuition. The director of Jake's new preschool encourages them to emphasize Jake's gender variance to help him standout and earn a scholarship.
Compared to the dramatic "A Kid Like Jake", "Isn't It Romantic" is more comedic, similarly to Chopra's most recent movie, "Baywatch".
Todd Strauss-Schulson's "Isn't It Romantic" stars Adam Devine and Liam Hemsworth together with Rebel Wilson. Wilson will play a young woman who has given up on love, only to somehow find herself trapped in a romantic comedy.
Chopra is unquestionably one of the biggest Bollywood stars of the generation. She has also been making big waves in Hollywood after she caught the attention of Hollywood execs from her role in ABC's popular TV series, "Quantico".
As the case with most lengthy TV seasons, "Quantico" is currently on a summer hiatus, thus giving Chopra enough free time to fit in one movie into her schedule.
However, "A Kid Like Jake" is set to start filming in June and "Isn't It Romantic" is slated to begin shooting in July, so Chopra will have her schedule full with juggling between the two movies in addition to promoting "Baywatch", before returning to "Quantico" in the fall.
And to that, we say: 'Good luck.'
