The film We Can Be Heroes cast also features Pedro Pascal, Boyd Holbrook, Christian Slater, Sung Kang, and others in the lead roles. According to E! Online, the film is reportedly a sequel to Robert Rodriguez' directed The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl that was released in 2005. The film had received mixed reactions from critics, many who felt that the film did not 'exceed expectations' in comparison to Rodriguez's previous film Alita: Battle Angel, which was produced by James Cameron. In 'We Can Be Heroes', Priyanka Chopra stars as Mrs Granada, the leader of 'The Heroics' organization which is filled with super-powered people. The film was released on Christmas Day 2020 and has surprisingly managed to remain in #1 in the top 10 Netflix films trending globally for a record 19 days. Currently, Priyanka Chopra has been busy promoting her upcoming drama film 'The White Tiger', directed by Ramin Bahrani and also co-starring Rajkummar Rao and Adarsh Gourav. The film is scheduled to release on 22 January 2021. She also shared an update earlier in January, that a We Can Be Heroes sequel is in the works. She will also be seen in the upcoming fourth Matrix film alongside Keanu Reeves and Carrie Ann Moss, directed by Lana Wachowski.
