A supermodel has to weigh new options in life after she becomes fat overnight.

This is the plot of a new movie called Fat Hope from Singapore-based Encore Films, which will start shooting soon.

It stars Taiwanese actors Alien Huang and Lin Yu-pin (both above), with home-grown actors Liu Lingling, Henry Thia and Jeffrey Xu also part of the cast.

Lin, who plays the supermodel, has already worked with a special effects team in Los Angeles to create a fat suit.
