Boxer Nose, Yuthlert and a Japanese swimsuit model
Rak/Sam/Sao director Yuthlert Sippapak is at work on his next project, E-Tim Tai Nai, a romantic comedy-drama written by and starring comedian Udom "Nose" Taepanich.
Nose plays an boxer who runs a bar in Pattaya. A Japanese tourist named Itemi, portrayed by swimsuit model Asuka Yanagi walks into the bar, and Nose's character, falls immediately in love.
The casting of the Japanese beauty follows a similar move in a film released earlier this year, GMM Tai Hub's Hormones, which featured a jaw-dropping turn by former AV idol Sora Aoi.
E-Tim has been in the works for a few years and is the first collaboration between Nose and Yuthlert.
Deknang has more photos from the set.
Nose, a popular stand-up comic, has previously starred in Loveaholic in 2006 and last year's black comedy Bus Lane, which I'm sorry I missed.
Currently, Nose can be seen in Daew 7, a behind-the-scenes documentary of his most recent stage show, which was was filmed by his younger brother, Crying Tigers and Bangkok Time helmer Santi Taepanich. Daew 7 (แอบถ่าย เดี่ยว 7) is playing at the Lido cinema in Bangkok, but it doesn't have subtitles.
