Nikki Reed (Twilight) is set to headline director Kelvin Tong's (Rule #1) new supernatural thriller, Email. Principal photography is scheduled to begin in May in Singapore with Highland Film Group handling worldwide sales and introducing the title to buyers at European Film Market in Berlin.
Likened in tone to The Ring and The Grudge, Email follows a young journalist, Thea Hartley, who travels to Singapore to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding her sister's death, soon discovering 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.
Email is being produced by SPJ Enterprises, zgreen entertainment and Boku Films. Peter Poon and Zachary Green are producing along with Leon Tong and Kat Goh in Singapore. Jason Shuman, who produced such horror hits as The Messengers and Darkness Falls, will be executive producing with Lauren Selig.
