Chung, Britton, Bowen Start A “Knife Fight”

Jamie Chung (“The Hangover Part II”), Julie Bowen (“Jumping the Broom”), Connie Britton (“The Hand Job”), Jennifer Morrison (“House”) and “Lost” thesps Rebecca Mader and Titus Welliver are all in negotiations to join the cast of the indie political drama “Knife Fight” reports Variety.

Bill Guttentag is directing and co-writing the script with Chris Lehane. Rob Lowe stars as a political crisis manager who specializes in playing hardball on behalf of scandal-plagued clients.

Chung plays his savvy assistant, Bowen an ambitious TV reporter who sleeps with him for scoops, and Britton an earthy liberal looking to run for public office.

Mader plays a masseuse/prostitute bent on blackmail, Morrison plays one of her classmates, and Welliver plays a private investigator working for Lowe.

Guerrino De Luca, Daniel Davila and Catherine Davila are producing with shooting kicking off next month in San Francisco.
