Céline Dion (and her music) to star in new drama Text For You
Céline Dion's <3 will go on in a new text-based tale of love and loss.
EW has confirmed the pop icon has joined the cast of the romantic drama Text for You, an English-language remake of the German box office hit SMS Fur Dich.
Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Outlander's Sam Heughan will lead the Screen Gems film about a grieving woman (Chopra Jonas) who sends romantic texts to her dead fiancé's phone, only to discover that the number has been reassigned to a man across town (Heughan) who is grappling with his own heartbreak. With help from Dion's music and influence, the pair forms a bond that leads to love once again.
Grace Is Gone helmer Jim Strouse will direct the film from a script he wrote with rewrites from Ibiza scribe Lauryn Kahn. The original German production is based on Sofie Cramer's popular novel of the same name, and was one of the highest-grossing films in that region in 2016.
