Hollywood debut: Priyanka Chopra may join Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron in 'Baywatch'

Los Angeles: In talks to join Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in "Baywatch", which would mark her Hollywod film debut.

The 33-year-old actress is already creating waves internationally with her maiden American TV series "Quantico". She also won her first international honour recently, People Choice Award for the best actress in a new TV series.

"Baywatch" is Paramount's big-screen take on the 1990s television series about California lifeguards.

Seth Gordon is directing the feature, which is paddling toward a shoot with Alexandra Daddario and Kelly Rohrbach also suiting up, said The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie centres on the leader of an elite group of lifeguards (Johnson), who is forced to team up with a young, hotshot former Olympian (Efron) to save their beloved bay.

Scheduling conflicts with the film's shoot and Priyanka's American show "Quantico" still need to be worked out, but if signed, the actress would play the story's villain.
