Shahkrit hooks up with Gybzy in My Ex
Even though a chunk of production staff has left to form their own company, RS Film's Avant label is still very much a going concern. Among the upcoming projects is My Ex (Fan Kao, แฟนเก่า), starring Shahkrit Yamnarm as an actor who flits from woman to woman.
That's Nymph star "Gybzy" Wanida Termthanporn there with him while the corpse of a spurned girlfriend lies mouldering next to them. Gybzy's singing group Girly Berry is on the RS record label, so it makes sense they'd want her making films for RS and not just Five Star.
My Ex is directed by Piyaphan Chuphet, who previously did the 2007 horror comedy Vow of Death (Pee Mai Jim Fun, ผีไม้จิ้มฟัน), about a group of goofball students who find themselves facing a curse if they can't put back together a tree they prayed to that has been chopped up into toothpicks. I somehow missed that one.
My Ex looks a bit more serious, especially with a solid leading man like Shahkrit in there.
Lyn's Lakorns has more on the project, and there's a thread with more posters and photos at Popcornmag. There's also an official website with a very short teaser.
My Ex is due in cinemas on August 27.
