'Hangover' and 'Twilight' Actresses Joining CBS Films' '7500' (Exclusive)
Jamie Chung, Christian Serratos of The Twilight Saga and Scout Taylor-Compton have joined the cast of CBS Films’ airborne thriller 7500.
Leslie Bibb, Ryan Kwanten and Amy Smart are already on board the creeper, which is being directed by Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge).
The story follows a group of passengers on a trans-Pacific flight who run into strange, possibly supernatural problems.
Chung is a newly-engaged flight attendant on her first flight working alongside Bibb while Taylor-Compton is one of the passengers described as having a “unique perspective on death.” Serratos will play a woman who shares a secret with her boyfriend prior to boarding. (At this stage, this is threatening to be one of the best-looking flights in all of moviedom.)
Lost writer Craig Rosenberg penned the screenplay. Grudge producer Taka Ichise is producing along with Roy Lee (The Ring).
Chung may be best known as Ed Helm’s fiancée in The Hangover Part 2 and also co-starred in Zack Snyder’s Sucker Punch. The Gersh-repped actress will next be seen opposite Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Premium Rush.
Taylor-Compton, repped by Gersh, portrayed Lita Ford in The Runaways and also played the lead in the recent Halloween remakes.
WME-repped Serratos is best known for her work in the Twilight movie, playing a character who is perhaps the only human friend of Bella, played by Kristen Stewart.
