Jamie Chung (THE HANGOVER PART II) and Scoot McNairy (MONSTERS) are in negotiations to join the gritty indie two-hander EDEN, THR is reporting.

EDEN, based on a spec by Richard B. Phillips and Chong Kim, centers on 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.

Writer/director Megan Griffiths, whose latest feature, THE OFF HOURS, premiered to positive reviews at Sundance earlier this year, is attached to direct from a script she co-wrote with Phillips.

Centripetal Films are financing the film, with production expected to get underway in Seattle and Washington D.C. later this summer.

Chung will next be seen in Columbia's PREMIUM RUSH, while McNairy recently wrapped COGAN'S TRADE, opposite Brad Pitt, Ray Liotta, and Richard Jenkins.
