Deadline Nikki Reed has been set to star Email, a horror pic from director Kelvin Tong. Peter Poon and Zachary Green are producing with Leon Tong and Kat Goh, and Jason Shuman is executive producing with Lauren Selig.
Shooting is set to start in May in Singapore, with Highland Film Group guiding worldwide sales at EFM, where it already will be pitching the Gonzalo Lopes-Gallego-helmed horror movie Sanctuary.
The story centers on a journalist (Reed) who travels to Singapore to investigate the mysterious circumstances of her sister’s death and discovers a string of bizarre killings involving a cursed email.
Along the way she meets Ted, an ex-pat technology reporter, and together they face the supernatural forces and unravel a mysterious conspiracy far bigger than they expected.
Reed is repped by Paradigm, Thruline Entertainment and attorney Lev Ginsburg.
