Baywatch officially has its new villain!

Quantico star Priyanka Chopra is set to join Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Zac Efron in the upcoming Baywatch movie based on the 1990s TV series.

The famed Bollywood actress will play the villainous Victoria Leeds in the film – and PEOPLE has an exclusive seaside snapshot of Chopra and costar Johnson as they gear up to dive into production.

Just like he did with Baywatch addition Kelly Rohrbach, Johnson welcomed Chopra to the cast on Tuesday with a video posted on Instagram.

“She’s one of the biggest stars in the world. Insanely talented, relentlessly smokin’ and extremely dangerous – perfect for #BAYWATCH. Welcome @PriyankaChopra to our bad ass and incredibly dysfunctional family,” he wrote. “Cue RATED R slo-mo running on the beach.”

The 33-year-old actress shared the video on her own Instagram page, adding, “Being Bad is what I do best!!! U better watch out!!”

She joins fellow beach gals Alexandra Daddario, Ilfenesh Hadera and Rohrbach, who will play C.J. Parker – the role originated by Pamela Anderson in the TV series.

Baywatch is set to begin shooting next month.
