Knightsbridge Entertainment and Metal Cut Film Productions held a press conference recently at The Bee @ Publika in Kuala Lumpur for the new 2018 sci-fi action thriller, Duality. The local Malaysian production is hailing its cast and crew with a round of fresh faces to accompany its raft of commercial TV and film veterans behind the lens with VFX talents, executive producer and award winning director Timo (The Attack of the Mutant Flower Crab) and Metal Cut’s own Wynner Cheong at the helm.

Leading the cast is actress Sylvia Tan from a script by Jason Ding (The Tailor-Made Man, Something Playing in My Ear, Esther) which tells a dystopian tale of Miss Red, an amnesiac who awakens to unknown whereabouts, and a mysterious set of skills that become vital to her survival as she fights to seek answers about who she is, why she was displaced, and the person(s) responsible. Tan, a model since the age of 16 and brand ambassador to Stone and Co. and work credits that include Owled, Ohnii and Calvin Klein, sets Duality as her feature acting debut.
