Celine Dion, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Sam Heughan are all set to join the cast of Sony’s Screen Gems romantic drama, tentatively titled ‘Text For You.’
The film is an English remake of the German-language film ‘SMS Fur Dich,’ based on Sofie Cramer’s novel. The story of the film revolves around a woman who, after tragically losing her fiance, starts to send romantic texts on his old mobile number.
As the story proceeds, it turns out that the phone number had been reassigned to a man suffering from a similar heartbreak. The movie then proceeds with this new story.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas will play a grieving woman who keeps on sending romantic texts to her fiancés phone after he dies, as she endeavors to discover her way back to life. Incredibly, following two years her accomplice’s previous number is reassigned to a man across town (played by Heughan), grappling with his very own catastrophe. After some time, the pair discover comfort in one another and, in the long run, come to adore once more.
The film is being directed by Jim Strouse who has also written the script, which Lauryn Kahnis will be re-writing.
‘Text For You,’ is being bankrolled by Thunder Road’s Basil Iwanyk, Erica Lee and Esther Hornstein.
