The romantic drama also features Outlander star Sam Heughan
Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra Jonas has bagged another exciting project. This time she is starring alongside Grammy winner Celine Dion and Outlander star Sam Heughan.
According to Deadline, the romantic drama, tentatively titled Text for You, is inspired by the 2016 German-language box office hit SMS Fur Dich, and will be directed by Jim Strouse from a screenplay he wrote with Lauryn Kahn.
Jonas’ character is a woman who after tragically losing her husband, sends a text message to his old number which now belongs to a man played by Heughan, who is suffering from a similar heartbreak. Dion’s character helps the duo move ahead in life and give love another chance.
The Quantico star shared the news with fans on Twitter. “So excited to kick start this amazing movie with such incredible people! Jim Strouse, Sam Heughan, and Celine Dion. It’s my honour. Let’s go!” she wrote.
