LONDON: Priyanka Chopra, whose debut Hollywood film is yet to hit the screens, is already in talks to join actors Jim Parsons and Claire Danes in an upcoming drama A Kid Like Jake. According to Deadline, Hollywood actor Octavia Spencer is set to join Parsons and Claire Danes in the drama, directed by Silas Howard. Priyanka, Ann Dowd and Michaela Watkins are in negotiations to join the film as well.
As they navigate their roles as parents, a rift grows between them, one that forces them to confront their own concerns about what’s best for Jake, and each other. If on board, Priyanka will portray Amal, their friend and a newly single mom who is also trying to navigate the school system, as well as her own dating world. Priyanka is looking forward to her Hollywood debut Baywatch, directed by Seth Gordon. The film is based on the television series of the same name and stars Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron. The movie is slated to release on June 2.
