SCOOT McNAIRY & JAMIE CHUNG Set To Join Human Trafficking Indie 'EDEN'

Jamie Chung [Sucker Punch] is set to join Eden, an indie-drama by Megan Griffiths. Scoot McNairy [Monsters] is also in negotiations to join the production. 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. The script, written by Griffiths and Richard B. Phillips is based on a story by Phillips and Chong Kim. Shooting is slated to begin in August in Seattle and eastern Washington state. There are no details on McNairy's role as of yet. The actor is best known for his role in Gareth Edward's Monsters, a sci-fi indie film about a journalist’s journey through a quarantine zone infected with an alien pathogen. McNairy stayed with the post-apocalyptic theme in Dragon Day, but his big break came in being cast alongside Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta and James Gandolfini in the upcoming Cogan’s Trade.
