Tentatively called Text For You, the movie will be directed by Jim Strouse. Inspired by the 2016 German hit SMS Fur Dich, the narrative revolves around a woman who, after the death of her fiancé, starts sending texts to his old cell. However, as fate would have it, the number had been reassigned to another gentleman experiencing the same kind of heartbreak. They end up meeting but cannot seem to stop thinking about the past. In the English adaptation, the music of Celine Dion helps them forge a deeper bond.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra was last seen in the 2019 movie The Sky is Pink. The actor has We Can Be Heroes, The Matrix 4 and The White Tiger in her kitty.
