Kelly Hu lands ‘Almost Perfect’ role

U.S. actress Kelly Hu has been cast in writer/director Bertha Bay-Sa Pan's romantic comedy, Almost Perfect, Slew Pictures announced Thursday.

Hu's previous film credits include The Scorpion King and X2: X-Men United.

Production on her next project is set to begin this month in New York.

In it, Hu will play Vanessa, a 30-something New York career woman, who, after too many years of being everybody's go-to girl, finally gets a chance at love when she meets a man who's almost perfect for her. But, just as she starts to consider the possibility of romance, her family life suddenly falls apart, Slew Pictures said in a news release.

I am so excited to work with Kelly, who not only kicks butt as an action hero, but is also an incredibly thoughtful and nuanced actor, with a killer sense of humor, Pan said in a statement. I can't wait to watch her experience this emotional journey on screen. It's going to be a lot of fun.

The cast also includes Ivan Shaw, Roger Rees, Tina Chen, Edison Chen and Christina Chang.
