Hot on the heels of the news that Angelina Jolie and Natalie Portman will star as the next female superheros, Priyanka Chopra is geared up to join in on the action. The former BAZAAR cover star will star in a new Netflix film called We Can Be Heroes, written and directed by Robert Rodriguez.
Whilst there is no word yet on the role Priyanka will be playing, the Quantico actress will be seen alongside the likes of Pedro Pascal, YaYa Gosselin and Akira Akbar in the film.
We Can Be Heroes circles around a group of alien invaders who kidnap Earth's superheroes, leaving children to fend for themselves and save their parents along with the world, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Priyanka's last project was Netflix production Isn’t It Romantic, in which she starred alongside Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth.
The 37-year-old actress is also set to make her comeback in Bollywood, playing a motivational speaker in The Sky Is Pink, a movie directed by Shonali Bose, set to be released this October 2019. The movie, which also stars Farhan Akhtar, and is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month, where Lebanese actress and director Nadine Labaki's latest work 1982 will also be screened.
So proud to announce that #TheSkyIsPink is the only film from Asia to have an official selection at #TIFF2019! Can't wait to be back this year in the dual role of actor & producer. I hope to see many of you at the world premiere on Sep 13. Thank you for all the love & support. pic.twitter.com/tJCS6eQSV6— PRIYANKA (@priyankachopra) July 24, 2019
