While we still wait for the release of her first Hollywood film, Baywatch, Priyanka Chopra, if reports are to be believed, is on the verge of signing her next Hollywood movie. Some rumours are going around that the actress is in negotiations to join Oscar-winner Octavia Spencer, Claire Danes and Jim Parsons in an upcoming drama titled, A Kid Like Jake. Seems like our Desi Girl’s international career is going great. Her Hollywood debut hasn’t even released and she has already signed her next film in Hollywood.

A Kid Like Jake is based on Daniel Pearle’s celebrated Lincoln Center play of the same name. It is the story of Alex (Danes) and Greg Wheeler (Parsons) and their bright and gifted son named Jake. Like all parents, Alex and Greg have high hopes for their son, who happens to prefer Cinderella to GI Joe. So when they go for his admission to kindergartens and they are aware they can’t afford private school tuition, the director of Jake’s preschool encourages them to accentuate Jake’s “gender variant” expression to help get a scholarship. As parents they struggle to figure out what’s best for their son. Priyanka has been approached to play Amal, Alex and Greg’s friend and a newly single mother, who will help the couple navigate through the school system.
