The Grudge director Takashi Shimizu’s latest chiller, 7500, is really beginning to take shape this week. Firstly it was confirmed that Amy Smart, Ryan Kwanten and Leslie Bibb were confirmed to be starring in the haunted plane chiller, and now more names have been attached and also some concept artwork (which looks suspiciously a lot like Red Eye) has also been shown at this weeks American Film Market. Read on for the official press release:
Jamie Chung (The Hangover Part II), Christian Serratos (The Twilight Saga) and Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween) have signed on to co-star in Takashi Shimizu’s (The Grudge) thriller 7500.
Written by Craig Rosenberg (TV’s “Lost”) and produced by Taka Ichise (The Grudge) and Roy Lee (The Ring), 7500 follows a group of passengers who encounter what appears to be a supernatural force while on a trans-Pacific flight. John Middleton and Tracy McGrath are serving as executive producers.
Chung will play Suzy Lee, a newly engaged flight attendant on Vista Pacific Flight 7500 while Serratos will co-star as Raquel Mendoza, who boards the plane after sharing a secret with her boyfriend. Taylor-Compton is set to play Jacinta Beckett, who has a unique perspective on death.
They join the previously announced Leslie Bibb (who plays Laura Baxter, a flight attendant who is involved in a complicated and secret relationship) and Ryan Kwanten and Amy Smart (portraying married couple Brad and Pia Martin, who board Vista Pacific Flight 7500 with their two longtime friends for a trip to Japan).
Senior Vice President of Production Maria Faillace and Creative Executive Ryan Conroy are overseeing the project for CBS Films.
