Priyanka Chopra, one of the stars of the ABC show Quantico, has joined the cast of the upcoming Baywatch film. The film's star, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, confirmed she has signed on.

"She's one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin' and extremely dangerous - perfect for #BAYWATCH. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad ass and incredibly dysfunctional family. Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach. We start shooting next week. World.. #WelcomeToBaywatch ???????," he captioned a short video clip of himself with Priyanka Chopra on Instagram.

In addition to Dwayne Johnson and Priyanka Chopra, Baywatch will star Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio's ex, Kelly Rohrbach.

Before getting cast for Quantico, Priyanka Chopra starred in several films in India. Baywatch is her first U.S. film.

Are you a fan of Quantico? In some people's opinion, Priyanka Chopra is the only intriguing facet of the show. She is beautiful--and talented, too.

What's your take on a Baywatch remake? Will Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Priyanka Chopra become of the David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson of the 2000s?
