Ex-reality TV personality Jamie Chung has done awfully well for herself over the last few years. She’s taken fairly meaty supporting roles in films such as THE HANGOVER PART II, SUCKER PUNCH, and THE MAN WITH THE IRON FISTS, but now it’s time for her to take on a leading role in what looks to be her most emotionally draining film to date. EDEN looks at the dark world of forced prostitution, as Chung plays a young woman who is kidnapped and put into a dangerous and disturbing situation. Unfortunately for Chung there is no Liam Neeson on his way to save her and she will have to fight her own way out, but once again things aren’t that simple. Chung will have to embrace the world she is now in and battle with her own morals and ethics if she wants to save herself.
The trailer sets up a fascinating psychological thriller and I hope the film can deliver performance wise. I always enjoy seeing Chung on screen, and this could be the film that pushes her towards being offered more substantial and complex leading roles. Chung’s busy schedule will see her in plane set horror 7500, reprising her role in THE HANGOVER PART III, and taking over the role of Miho in SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR.
EDEN has no set release date just yet. It stars Jamie Chung, Matt O’Leary, Beau Bridges, Scott Mechlowicz, and Ernie Joseph.
