Priyanka Chopra Jonas in Russo Brothers' Amazon Prime Video spy thriller series
Amazon Prime Video and the Russo Brothers, Anthony Russo and Joe Russo, are collaborating on an interesting project. And guess what, the project will be headlined by none other than Priyanka Chopra Jonas. It is an international spy thriller TV series, titled 'Citadel'. Priyanka Chopra Jonas shared a post by Variety on her official Instagram page this morning, confirming the news.
Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are familiar with the work of the Russo Brothers. They are the ones behind the recent Marvel franchises, namely Captain America and The Avengers. Priyanka's co-star on the show will be Game of Thrones actor, Richard Madden.
Citadel will be made in the form of a multi-series, with multiple local-language productions of the franchise in Mexico, Italy and India. Richard Madden and Priyanka Chopra Jonas will be a part of the U.S. “mothership” edition of the global series.
Interestingly, the Indian edition of the spy series has been handed over for development to Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. of Go Goa Gone, Street and The Family Man fame. That makes it an additional treat for fans of the duo's special brand of cinema.
Citadel has been commissioned by Amazon Prime Video. Talks were in progress with all stakeholders from April last year. It is only now that the project has been greenlit.
Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg are the writers and executive producers of Citadel. Patrick Moran and Mike Larocca will executive produce with Joe and Anthony Russo.
