Priyanka Chopra is busy with the promotions of her first Hollywood flick Baywatch, which is all set to release on May 25th. However, PC has apparently already chosen her next Hollywood project, as per producer Paul Bernon.
Paul tweeted, “I am producing this & am so excited to work with Jim, Claire, @octaviaspencer @priyankachopra @michaelaWat!.”
The movie is to be directed by Silas Howard and features Octavia Spencer, Jim Parsons and Claire Danes among others. The team is set to shoot for the movie this summer in New York. The project is based on Daniel Pearle’s celebrated Lincoln Center play A Kid Like Jake.
Parsons said about the project, “That’s Wonderful Productions was founded to tell stories just like this one. From the moment we read Daniel Pearle’s beautiful play, A Kid Like Jake, we knew that this would be our first project for the big screen.”
Director howards said about the movie, ““We live in a world that cherishes a child’s uniqueness while paradoxically punishing difference. I’m interested in the ways that, even when acting out of love, people can do harm when confronted with the fear of the uncontrollable. How does a parent balance those intense pressures? These tensions fascinate me both as a filmmaker and as someone with intimate knowledge of our culture’s fixation on policing gender.”
Well, what do you think of that?
