Bollywoodfever, March 1: Karl Urban is currently in discussions to co-star alongside Priyanka Chopra Jonas in ‘The Bluff’, directed by Frank E.

Planned to commence production in Australia this spring, ‘The Bluff’ will be available for streaming on Prime Video across over 240 countries and territories globally.

This project marks another collaboration among Amazon MGM Studios, AGBO, and Chopra Jonas, following the successful launch of ‘Citadel’ last year

The spy-thriller series quickly rose to become one of Prime Video’s top new original series, ranking second in viewership outside the U.S. and fourth globally. With the anticipated production of ‘Citadel’s’ second season set to start this year, featuring Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden, with Joe Russo directing and AGBO as the executive producer, the partnership continues to grow.

The screenplay for ‘The Bluff’ was a collaborative effort between Frank E. Flowers and Joe Ballarini. The production team includes notable figures from AGBO, such as Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Angela Russo-Otstot, and Michael Disco; Cisely Saldana and Mariel Saldana from Cinestar Pictures; and Priyanka Chopra Jonas herself. The executive producers are Kassee Whiting of AGBO; Zoe Saldaña of Cinestar Pictures; Thorsten Schumacher of Rocket Science; alongside Joe Ballarini and Frank E. Flowers.

Priyanka Chopra Jonas brings a wealth of experience with over seventy-five roles in both international and Hollywood films and series. In February 2021, she gained recognition as a New York Times bestselling author for her memoir, ‘Unfinished’. 

Her upcoming roles include starring in Prime Video’s ‘Heads of State’ alongside John Cena and Idris Elba. Her production company, Purple Pebble Pictures, holds a first-look film and television deal with Amazon MGM Studios. Chopra Jonas is managed by UTA and Anjula Acharia.

Karl Urban is celebrated for his role in Prime Video’s highly acclaimed series ‘The Boys’ and its spinoff, ‘Gen V’. Represented by UTA, Urban is also renowned for his portrayal of Dr. Bones McCoy in the J.J. Abrams-directed Star Trek films.

Joe Ballarini is represented by Verve Talent and Literary Agency and attorney Rob Goldman.

AGBO, led by the Russo brothers, has made a significant impact as an independent studio by producing several hit streaming movies. Notably, ‘Extraction’, starring Chris Hemsworth on Netflix, introduced a new franchise that emphasizes practical stunts, explores unique global settings, and showcases local talent. 

Following the success of ‘Extraction 2’ last summer, which confirmed the franchise as Netflix’s most successful to date, ‘Extraction 3’ has been officially announced. 

Other successful projects include ‘The Gray Man’, directed by the Russos and ranking among Netflix’s top five most-watched movies of all time, and ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’, an AGBO-produced film that won the Academy Award for Best Picture and set records for A24.

Cinestar Pictures, founded by sisters Mariel, Cisely, and Zoe Saldaña, focuses on expanding the American narrative through meaningful, character-driven content. 

The company is dedicated to authentic portrayals of women and accurate depictions of contemporary America, producing stories that resonate with diverse audiences. 

Their portfolio includes a variety of projects such as the AOL original series ‘My Hero’, the ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ remake with Lionsgate for NBC, and ‘The Honor List’, their first feature film released by Lionsgate’s Studio L in 2018. 

Cinestar’s productions also include ‘The Gordita Chronicles’ for Sony and HBO Max, the Netflix limited series ‘From Scratch’ in collaboration with Hello Sunshine, two seasons of the Emmy-nominated ‘Mamas’ for Roku Channel, ‘Meet Me in Paris’ and its follow-up ‘Meet Me in Rome’, the Disney+ series ‘MPower’, ‘Special Ops: Lioness’ created by Taylor Sheridan for Paramount+, and ‘The Absence of Eden’, directed by Marco Perego, which premiered at the 2023 Taormina Film Festival and is set for a theatrical release by Roadside Attractions.
