LOS ANGELES– Actress Priyanka Chopra is in talks to join Hollywood actors Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron in the upcoming film “Baywatch”, based on the 1990s TV series about California lifeguards.

Beau Flynn, Ivan Reitman, Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions, Michael Berk, Douglas Schwartz, Gregory Bonann will be co-producing it.
