The Hangover Part II's Jamie Chung will continue her box office blitzkrieg by starring opposite Rob Lowe in director Bill Guttentag's indie political drama Knife Fight. Lowe will play a political crisis manager who specializes in playing hardball on behalf of scandal plagued clients. Chung joins in on the salaciousness as his assistant who knows how to spin a negative story.

Chung has appeared in two potential blockbuster films that have been bashed by critics: Zack Snyder's Sucker Punch and The Hangover Part II, which have ended up with a 22% and 33% rating, respectively, on Rotten Tomatoes.

Production is scheduled to start next month in San Francisco with a release date planned for October 2012, just in time for the next presidential election.
