“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,” he wrote. “Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach.”
The Seth Gordon-directed film will start shooting next week, according to Johnson. Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman will direct.
The 33-year-old Bollywood star — who plays FBI trainee Alex Parrish in ABC’s freshman hit Quantico — shared Johnson’s video on her own Instagram page, adding, “Being Bad is what I do best!!! U better watch out!!”
