The film follows a political strategist (Lowe) as he juggles three clients and questions whether or not to take the high road as the ugly side of his work begins to haunt him.
Chung plays Lowe's assistant as they navigate a trio of election campaigns rife with cheating husbands, blackmail and even an actual knife fight.
"Knife Fight" premiered at last year's Tribeca Film Festival and will be released by IFC Entertainment On Demand and digitally Jan. 28. It stars Lowe, Chung, Carrie-Anne Moss and Richard Schiff.
Chung is currently filming her role in the upcoming Robert Rodriguez "Sin City" sequel "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," and can be seen in the role of a flight attendant in Japanese horror director Takashi Shimizu's yet to be released " 7500."
The former MTV Real World star will also reprise her role as the Ed Helms character Stu's wife in "The Hangover Part III" and recently appeared in the action films "Premium Rush" and "The Man with the Iron Fists."
Here's the full "Knife Fight" synopsis from IFC:
If a political candidate is personally flawed, but stands to make a positive difference in millions of lives, would you help him win? That question looms over the life of “true believer” Paul Turner (Rob Lowe), a savvy strategist sharply maneuvering politicians out of scandal and into public office. With the help of a bright young assistant (Jamie Chung) and a seedy operative (Richard Schiff), Turner spins every news cycle and a shrewd reporter (Julie Bowen) on behalf of his clients: a philandering Kentucky governor (Eric McCormick), a blackmailed California senator (David Harbour), and an idealistic doctor turned gubernatorial candidate (Carrie-Anne Moss). When the ugly side of Turner’s work begins to haunt him, he learns that even in the bloodiest of battles, sometimes you have to fight clean.
IFC describes the film as a smart, crackling, comedic “inside look” at what happens behind closed doors in modern American politics. Two-time Academy Award-winning director Bill Guttentag teamed with renowned political consultant Chris Lehane to create this political story for the new century. As the November election approaches, "Knife Fight" pulls back the curtain on the “real truth” of the political process.
