Priyanka Chopra Jonas has just landed a plum project, one that’ll make her the envy of many. It is a TV series called Citadel, being made by the the Russo Brothers, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo. The Russo Brothers are the names behind the recent Marvel hits, comprising the Captain America franchise and the Avengers franchise.
The news is not a surprise for those in the know. Priyanka and the Russo Brothers have been in talks regarding the project since April of 2019, and it is only now that the final deal has been sealed and announcements made.
The series has been commissioned by Amazon Prime Video, and it’ll be a multiseries, spanning continents. There will be local-language productions of the franchise in Mexico, Italy and India. The international spy thriller will star Game of Thrones actor Richard Madden, along with Priyanka Chopra Jonas. The duo will be a part of the U.S. “mothership” edition of the global series.
In an interesting aside, the Indian leg of the series will be developed by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., of Stree and The Family Man fame. That certainly adds an intriguing edge to Citadel.
Priyanka shared the news of the new series on her Instagram today. Hubby Nick commented with a lineup of ‘fire’ emojis.
