Priyanka Chopra is getting into the cult business.
The actress announced on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Wednesday that she and director Barry Levinson are developing a cinematic treatment of the story seen in Netflix's hit docuseries Wild Wild Country.
Wild Wild Country centered on the true story of the Rajneeshees, a group of followers of the religious guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, aka Osho, who tried to create a utopia in Oregon in the '80s. Members of the group were convicted of using a biological attack in an effort to secure seats on the Wasco County Circuit Court to gain prominence in the small region.
Chopra will star as Ma Anand Sheela, Osho's right-hand woman. "She was just devious and created a whole cult in America," the Quantico star told DeGeneres. Chopra will also produce the film.
Wild Wild Country is currently available on Netflix.
