Yuthlert ready with three-pack of hitman films
Having wrapped up his Buppah Rahtree ghost franchise for now, "Tom" Yuthlert Sippapak gets back to the hitman genre of his 2001 debut Killer Tattoo with a trilogy of hitman movies, Meu Puen 3 Pak (มือปืนตรัยภาค), which will be released by Phranakorn.
Yuthlert had four top actresses lined up at the press conference to promote the project, which is well under way.
Among them is Sirin "Cris" Horwang, riding high on awards-season buzz for last year's romantic comedy Bangkok Traffic (Love) Story. She previously worked with Yuthlert on the 2008 Nose Udom vehicle E-Tim Tay Nai, playing an Akkha woman.
Another actress is "May" Pichanart Sakakorn from The Victim, who starred in Yuthlert's 2004 crime comedy Sai Lor Fah (Pattaya Maniac).
There's also Ploy Jindachot from Phranakorn's giant snake thriller Deep in the Jungle and hard-working young actress "Saipan" Apinya Sakuljaroensuk, who will appear later this year in Phranakorn's snake horror The Intruder.
Can't have a Yuthlert joint without comedians, so there was the usual crew of funnymen at the press conference, including Udom Chuanchuan, Kotee Aramboy, Pattaya Maniac's "Nong" Choosak Iamsuk and Killer Tattoo star Thep Po-ngam.
The first part, Meu Puen Dao Prasook (มือปืน ดาวพระศุกร์, Venus Hitman), is being planned for release in May. Subsequent entries will be Meu Puen Dao Prasao (มือปืน ดาวพระเสาร์, Saturn Hitman) and Meu Puen Pra-athit (มือปืนพระอาทิตย์, Sun Hitman).
Each will have different themes, drama for the first, then romance and finally comedy.
