Nevertheless, the actress is already well-known thanks to the popularity of her television series Quantico.

According to Hollywood Reporter, the Russo Brothers and Appelbaum-Nemec had creative disagreements that caused half of the creative team to leave and prompted the programme to undergo a series of costly reshoots.

According to rumours, Citadel will cost $250 million (about Rs. 1994 crores) to produce.
