Looking for a holy date

Workpoint Entertainment (no link - it's annoying flash animation), a production firm that mainly does shows for Thailand's TV channel 7 is looking to break into moviemaking next year with a comedy that will star Nong Cha Cha Cha (from Pattaya Maniac) and Theng Therdtherng, the funnyman who starred in Holy Man, one of this year's biggest grossing comedies, making around 141 million baht.

According to The Nation's print-only Soopsip column the movie will be called Nong Theng Nakleng Phookhao Thong.

Of course, the company is lining up some deep pockets to help out - Somsak Techarattanaprasert and Sahamongkol Films.

It'll probably make money, and everyone will be happy.

Phanit Sodsri, who has worked with the two comics for many years on the hit TV show Ching Roy Ching Laan will direct.

Filming has just started and the release date has been set for March - the same time of year that Holy Man came out.

What's that joke about the most important thing in comedy?
