Clover Films is getting ready to unwrap spooky Singaporean comedy When Ghost Meets Zombie in time for Valentines Day next year, Variety is reporting. The film stars local singer-actor Nathan Hartono, who made it to the grand finals of the “Sing! China” singing contest variety program in 2017. He was Jay Chou’s protege during that season of the singing contest, and has since become well-known across the region.
“The movie tells the story of Pong (Hartono), who turns into a zombie when saving his town from a disaster.
“He leads a mechanical and aimless life until a female ghost comes into his life. Believing that even an afterlife should be lived to the full, she drags Pong into her dream of joining a beauty pageant.”
Female lead, Ferlyn Ng, was selected after a talent search for the role in Singapore. Other cast include Jesseca Liu, Jeremy Chan, Fann Wong, Gurmit Singh, Andie Chen, Kate Pang, Jack Neo, Suhaimi Yusof, Constance Song, Dennis Chew, Shaun Chen, Yvonne Lim, Zheng Ge Ping, Lee Ten, and Chen Tianwen. The director is Han Yew Kwang (“18 Grams of Love”).
The first trailer made its way online this morning.
