Quantico and Baywatch star Priyanka Chopra is in negotiations to join the indie drama A KID LIKE JAKE, starring Jim Parsons and Claire Danes. Chopra is also in talks to join New Line’s comedy ISN’T IT ROMANTIC opposite Rebel Wilson.

Chopra will film A Kid Like Jake in June and then it will be followed by Isn’t it Romantic in July before returning to film her ABC show this fall.

Silas Howard will be directing A Kid Like Jake, which also stars Octavia Spencer. It follows two parents who are in the process of filling out kindergarten applicants for their four-year-old boy who is gender variant. After realizing that they can’t afford private school tuition, the director of Jake’s preschool encourages them to emphasize Jake’s gender variance to help him stand out and earn a scholarship.

Parsons and Todd Spiewak will produce through their That’s Wonderful Productions banner alongside Eric Norsoph. Double Nickel will be executive producing.

Meanwhile, Isn’t It Romantic will be directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson and stars Adam DeVine and Liam Hemsworth. The romantic comedy follows a young woman (Wilson) who gives up on love only to mysteriously find herself trapped inside a romantic comedy.
