Kathy Morgan International is talking up the edgy comedy Syrup starring Amber Heard, Shiloh Fernandez and Kellan Lutz from the Twilight franchise.

Aram Rappaport will direct from a screenplay by Max Barry and Cameron Lamb is producing with Barrie Osborne.

Syrup is based on the bestseller about a young advertising executive who struggles to hold on to his sense of ethics as he tries to develop a new product that gives new meaning to the old adage, sex sells.

Production is scheduled to kick off in New York on Jun 6.
