Sam Heughan (Outlander) and Priyanka Chopra Jonas (Quantico) are set to star in the Screen Gems romantic drama, tentatively titled Text For You, with music icon and five-time Grammy Award winner Celine Dion also joining the cast. Grace Is Gone helmer Jim Strouse is directing the pic from a screenplay he wrote with Lauryn Kahn undertaking the most recent re-write.
The film is inspired by the 2016 German-language box office hit SMS Fur Dich, which is based on Sofie Cramer’s popular novel. It’s about a woman who, to ease the pain after tragically losing her fiancé, starts to send romantic texts to his old cell. It turns out, the phone number has been reassigned to a man across town suffering from similar heartbreak. The two meet and feel an undeniable connection, but can’t seem to leave the past behind. In this English language remake, the music and influence of Dion gives them the courage to take a chance on love again.
