Get your slow motion cam ready, Priyanka Chopra might be running down the beach soon!

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the “Quantico” star is in talks to join the “Baywatch” movie being led by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.

After scoring a breakout role as the lead of “Quantico,” Priyanka Chopra snagged a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Actress in a New TV Series. Following her win — the first for a South Asian actress — Chopra said, “I am so super overwhelmed to win this! I guess, getting it the first year of being in a completely different country, I’m very excited!”

Will she be taking that excitement to the beach, though

Information about the new “Baywatch” movie is still thin on the ground, but Chopra is reportedly set to play the villain in the new installment, opposite Zac Efron and Dwayne Johnson. Also already signed on are Alexandra Daddario, who you might remember from Johnson’s latest action flick, “San Andreas,” and Sports Illustrated model, Kelly Rohrbach.

If the deal does work out and Chopra signs on for “Baywatch,” she’s set to play the film’s villain.
