Reality TV gal made good Jamie Chung and “Monsters’” Scoot McNairy will headline indie filmmaker Megan Griffiths’ latest film, the gritty drama “Eden”, about a subject matter that is anything but Eden-ish.
In the film, co-written by Griffiths with Richard B. Phillips, Chung will play “a young Korean-American girl who is abducted and forced into prostitution by domestic human traffickers. Throughout the two years she is held, she ensures her own survival by carving out power and influence within the very organization that has imprisoned her.”
No word on McNairy’s role, but he’s the male lead opposite Chung.
Chung is one busy gal. Besides co-starring roles in “The Hangover II”, “Burning Palms”, and “Sucker Punch”, plus the upcoming “Knife Fight” with Rob Lowe and “The Man with the Iron Fists” with Russell Crowe and RZA, she’s also got something called “Premium Rush” on the way, in which she co-stars with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Shannon.
Not bad for someone who started her career on MTV’s “The Real World”.
