As per a report in Deadline, Uday Chopra who is now the CEO of YRF said that Jessica was the perfect casting.
“Jessica is the perfect actress to star in Seducing Ingrid Bergman. Jessica is no stranger to portraying strong, intelligent women and this role deserves an actress of her immeasurable talent. We also feel that she will bring a unique perspective as a producer,”
YRF Entertainment will be financing the project and Jonathan Reiman will take up the role of executive producer for the film. Director of the film is not finalised yet but it will be on board soon.
We are super kicked for this amazing upcoming project and wish the team a bundle of luck.
