The biggest star out of India - Dwayne Johnson
And here is the official confirmation right from the horse's mouth.
Priyanka Chopra reposted a video on her social networking account to share this happy news.
The announcement comes shortly after fellow cast member Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson posted an Instagram video introducing the Bollywood star.
In it, he welcomes Chopra to the film's "bad a** and incredibly dysfunctional family." Chopra later reposted the video, writing being bad is what she does best.
An excited Priyanka is seen replying, "I am so happy to be here!"
She's one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin' and extremely dangerous - perfect for #BAYWATCH. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad ass and incredibly dysfunctional family. Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach. We start shooting next week. World.. #WelcomeToBaywatch 🇺🇸🌊🇮🇳👊🏾
The two stars look super excited here and all set to kick-start the shoot next week.
Priyanka's character as Victoria Leeds is the bad girl in the movie who comes from a 'slightly dysfunctional family'.
The film will begin shooting next week and will debut in theaters May 19, 2017.
'San Andreas' actress Alexandra Daddario was recently tapped to play Summer (originally portrayed by Nicole Eggert) and model Kelly Rohrbach recently signed on to play C.J. Parker (originally played by Pamela Anderson).
Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote the latest draft of the script. Although plot details are currently vague, sources close to the project reveal that the studio is taking a comedic route with the movie. Production is expected to commence in the new few months.
Best known for her Bollywood credits, Chopra broke out onto the domestic scene following her star-making performance in ABC's drama 'Quantico,' which the network picked up for a full 22 episodes.
