South Korean and Taiwanese stars in Michelle Chong's new movie


Leading the cast in actress-film-maker Michelle Chong's second film, 3 Peas In A Pod, will be Korean pop star Alexander Lee Eusebio and Taiwanese singer Calvin Chen of boy band Fahrenheit.

Chong, 36, tells Life! that the casting is meant to reflect the "international feel" of the movie, which will "90 per cent be shot" in Melbourne and Adelaide in Australia.

"I want the film to do well not just in Singapore, but overseas as well," she says.

Chong declined to reveal the cost of hiring the two singer-actors, though she reveals that the overall production budget is $1.7 million.
