Bacon sizzling in Bangkok
Prachya Pinkaew's and Bangkok's Bacon Rating just skyrocketed.
Kevin Bacon -- Bacon Number Zero -- is in Bangkok, shooting his scenes for Elephant White, the action film starring Djimon Hounsou that the Ong-Bak and Chocolate helmer is directing as his English-language debut.
They were filming on Thursday night near Bangkok's Chinatown.
The Footloose and Tremors star plays an untrustworthy old acquaintance of Hounsou's character, Curtie Church, a mercenary in Bangkok. Photos posted on NationPhoto's Facebook group show Bacon and Hounsou running around in the dark. Prachya is shown standing next to Bacon in another shot.
Written by Kevin Bernhardt and produced by Millennium Films with production services by DeWarrenne Pictures, Elephant White is planned for release next year.
