Cue the slo-motion running montage. Priyanka Chopra is the latest addition to the Baywatch movie. Dwayne ‘The Rock‘ Johnson revealed the news via Instagram.
“She’s one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin’ and extremely dangerous – perfect for #BAYWATCH,” he said in the video.
The Quantico actress will reportedly play the villain in the film adaptation of the popular 90s series. She’ll join Zac Efron, Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera and Kelly Rohrbach. The latter will step into Pamela Anderson’s shoes, or should I say iconic red bathing suit, to play CJ Parker.
The Seth Gordon-directed project begins filming later this month with a May 2017 release date in mind. Check out Johnson’s video below.
