Amidst the speculations that Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas could get married soon, it is being reported that the Quantico actress is in talks with Universal for her next Hollywood movie.

The Baywatch star, who will soon be seen in 'Isn't It Romantic', will star opposite Guardians of the Galaxy Chris Pratt in 'Cowboy Ninja Viking'.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 36-year-old star will play Pratt's love interest in the movie. Variety reports that the movie is based on Image Comics graphic novel by A.J. Lieberman and illustrator Riley Rossmo.

The novel delves into the story of an assassin who displays his toughest skills of three different personas: a cowboy, a ninja, and a Viking. Pratt will be playing the interchangeable lead role.

The Hollywood news site reveals that the role was "one of the more highly coveted in town." Chopra beat a lot of women after her chemistry test with Pratt "went extremely well."

The movie will be directed by Michelle MacLaren from Game of Thrones and the screenplay is done by Dan Mazeau, Ryan Engle, Craig Mazin, Paul Wernick and David Reese. The production house has chalked out a June 28, 2019 release.

Chopra has had only one Hollywood movie release this year: A Kid Like Jake. The actress's ABC TV show Quantico premiered its third and final season on television this summer. Apart from her international ventures, the actress has signed (and left) a couple of Bollywood projects.

She will soon start work on Shonali Bose's 'The Sky Is Pink' from August 8. The actress recently stepped down of a major Bollywood venture titled Bharat opposite Indian superstar Salman Khan. 

Meanwhile Pratt has had a good year on the movie front. The actor was part of the Marvel blockbuster Avengers: Infinity War and was also seen in Jurassic World 2 aka Jurassic World: Fallen.
