Yuthlert, Uncle searching for snake lady

Yuthlert Sippapak, the director of Buppha Rahtree and Ghost of Valentine (Krasue Valentine), is sticking with horror movies.

For his next film, he's doing Mia Ngoo (The Snake's Wife) and is searching for a fresh-faced leading lady.

"We want the actress who is able to play with snakes. She must be sexy, too," producer Adirek "Uncle" Watleela, told the Soop Sip column in The Nation earlier this week.

The actress should be aged between 18 and 25.

"We’ll consider actresses from applications and photos. We don't need to do personal interviews," Uncle says.

Uncle and Yuthlert have worked on several projects together, with Uncle having a role in both Buppha Rahtree films and Ghost Valentine as half of a duo of bumbling police officers. He's hilarious. Yuthlert, in turn, had a guest appearance in Uncle's directorial comeback last year, Ghost Variety.

In more flush years, Uncle was a powerful producer, with his own production company, Film Bangkok, which backed such influential Thai films as Bangkok Dangerous, Bang Rajan and Tears of the Black Tiger. Film Bangkok is now shuttered and Uncle's finding his footing again as a director, producer and comic actor.

Anyway, if you're a sexy Thai woman, between ages 18 and 25, and like to handle snakes, and you're willing to work with Yuthlert and Uncle, send a headshot to Filmman Company, 302/42 Suan Suetrong Village, Soi Lat Phrao 71, Wangthonglang, Bangkok 10310 or e-mail filmman_cast@yahoo.co.th.

Update: Twitch has conceptual poster art, from Deknang.
