If you’ve been on Netflix at all lately, you’ve probably come across Wild Wild Country.

The documentary tells the real-life story of the Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and his cult of followers in Oregon.

One of the doccie’s most important characters is the spiritual leader’s personal secretary, Ma Anand Sheela, who Bhagwan blamed for an assassination plot involving US attorney Charles H. Turner.

Now the acclaimed docu-series is set to be turned into a feature film with Priyanka Chopra.

Whilst making an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the Quantico actress told the comedienne, “We’re developing it as the character of Sheela, who was this guru who originated from India, [Bhagwan’s] right-hand woman. And she was just devious and created a whole cult in America, brought people here. [The documentary] was amazing, and I’m developing that next for me to star in and produce, which I think would be really cool.”

The new Mrs. Nick Jonas will co-produce with Barry Levinson who has brought us Good Morning, Vietnam and Rain Man.

We’re sure it’s going to be wild.
