Naked in the Jungle
I wrote about the Phranakorn fantasy Deep in the Jungle back in April and kind of forgot about it until I saw some posts about it on Lyn's Lakorn Blog and at Twitch. Earlier tipped for release in July, Deep in the Jungle (Patiharn Rak Tang Pun) is now being readied for release on December 31.
In what appears to be a contemporary retelling of the Snake King's Child story, "Tik" Jesdaporn Pholdee stars as a former special forces soldier who falls in love with a woman (Ploy Jindachot) who is actually a snake.
And, remarkably, they go completely naked, according to BKKdreamer, who sent me news from Hunsa. Also, Spicy Forum has some discussion.
The movie marks a return to a leading movie role by Tik Jesdaporn, the Daeng Bireley's Young Gangsters star who got to swash some buckle as a pistol-packing prince in Queens of Langkasuka.
It is written and directed by Teerawat Rujeenatham, whose credits include cinematography on In the Shadow of the Naga.
The posters look great. But this being a Phranakorn production, I am keeping my expectations low. By all means, go into the jungle, but be very careful.
