Finally Priyanka Chopra is actually doing another film.Reports of her joining Keanu Reeves in his next Matrix film(clearly a misconceived PR exercize) notwithstanding, Priyanka has wangled what looks like her most powerful Hollywood sojourn to date.
In Text For You, to be directed by Jim Strouse , Priyanka plays a woman grieving for her dead fiancée who starts texting her dead lover on his old cellphone to deal with her grief. The film was earlier made into a very successful German film titled DMS Fur Dich in 2016. It is an author-backed powerful dramatic role for Priyanka and something she hasn’t done in quite a while.
Interestingly the director Jim Strouse’s debut film Grace Is Gone in 2007 was also about dealing with bereavement. Looks like Text For You would have a lot of scope for Priyanka to sing. But she isn’t singing. Not this time. Celine Dion is.
