Pop songbird-actress Christina Milian ("Be Cool", "Man
of the House") has been cast opposite Kristen Bell in "Pulse"
-- a remake of cult Japanese helmer Kiyoshi Kurosawa's "Kairo"
-- for Bob and Harvey Weinstein's Weinstein Co. reports Variety.
Plot surrounds a Web site powered by a sinister force. As more
users go to the site, a door to terrifying evil is opened, and
some college kids witness a string of bizarre deaths among their
classmates. Milian will play Bell's best friend, a street-smart
party girl who uses the Net as a dating tool.
Pic, set to lense this month in Romania, is based on an adaptation
by Wes Craven and Ray Wright. Jim Sonzero is helming "Pulse,"
which also stars Ian Somerhalder ("Lost"), Samm Levine
and Rick Gonzalez.
