Robert Rodriguez’s We Can Be Heroes Lands Priyanka Chopra Jonas
Deadline reports that Quantico vet and Isn’t It Romantic? star Priyanka Chopra Jonas has signed on to lead the cast of Robert Rodriguez ‘s secretive Netflix project We Can Be Heroes.
The film, which is being written, directed and produced by Rodriguez, will follow a group of children who must team up to save their superhero parents and the world from alien invaders who have kidnapped the heroes.
The project has been kept under the radar thus far, with the writer/director and the streaming service holding their cards close to their chest, but the film is currently in production and the tone seems to be leaning towards Rodriguez’s more light-natured fare such as the Spy Kids films and Alita: Battle Angel, which grossed over $400 million at the box office and is quickly gaining a cult following after less than a year of hitting theaters.
Chopra Jonas got her start in the Bollywood industry before finding American fame with the ABC espionage thriller series Quantico, for which she received acclaim for her leading performance through the show’s three seasons and would go on to star in the 2017 film adaptation of Baywatch and the romantic fantasy-comedy Isn’t It Romantic? alongside Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect) and Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games).
