Report from the set of Invisible Waves

Twitch has a Southeast Asian correspondent, who was in Phuket for the filming of Pen-Ek Ratanaruang's Invisible Waves:

Having a day visit to the set of Pen-ek's Invisible Waves starring Gang Hye Jung from Old Boy, Asano Tadanobu (Ichi the Killer, Zatoichi and the upcoming Tokyo Zombies) and the [director of photograpy] is Chris Doyle. Right now we are shooting in Patong, in the gay bar district. It is 10am, so things are still quiet, but lots of lady boys and neon signs advertising "Bar for Men". When the extras stripped down to their underwear, you could tell you were on a Pen-ek film!

While Asano was taking a break we were talking film and the subject of the great Rock and Roll zombie film, Wild Zero came up as it was also shot in Thailand (with Thai military and their familes playing the gut munchers).

The Thai New Agency has a report. Seems the government hopes to derive some tourism value from the film. The Bangkok Post has a huge report. And Monkey Peaches has a report, too.
