Poj Arnon casting for gay soccer comedy

Bangkok Love Story writer-director Poj Arnon is scouting for good-looking young men for his next project, a gay soccer comedy being produced at Phranakorn Film.

Bangkok of the Mind has the news via Popcornmag:

Are you young, male, and good-looking? If so, Thai director Poj Anon might have the film role for you.

It's a teen comedy, for which he requires the services of 20 young men aged 15-18. They can be 'real' or 'artificial' men (kathoey), and if they can play football, it's a plus.

Bkkdreamer further relates that it will be "a comedy in the vein of Satree Lek" (Iron Ladies), the internationally popular comedy about a gay and transgender men's volleyball team, "only his would be about football, where gays and straights must play, and rub up alongside each other."

There's even an e-mail address for prospective players: banpoj [at] yahoo [dot] com.
