Cannes 2010: Bangkok Knockout, Chocolate 2, 14 Beyond among upcoming projects for Sahamongkol
Sahamongkolfilm International is at the Marché Du Film at Cannes, touting a full slate of action titles.
Among them is Bangkok Knockout, directed by action guru Panna Rittikrai.
Prachya Pinkaew is preparing Chocolate 2 (ช็อคโกแลต 2) with Jija Yanin.
And there is 14 Beyond, the follow-up to 13 Beloved (13 เกมสยอง, 13 Game Sayong, also 13: Game of Death) by Matthew Chookiat Sakveerakul.
Also coming up is a three-segment erotic shorts compilation Brown Sugar and Tri (Muay Thai Chronicles), an animated feature.
Film Business Asia has more details about the projects.
Of course Sahamongkol is also selling Ong-Bak 3 at the Cannes Film Market.
The Hollywood Reporter has a broader look at the Southeast Asian films being pushed.
Apichatpong Weerasethakul's Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (check out the poster) is being repped by Germany's Match Factory.
Five Star Production is there selling Slice and offering a preview of Ananda Everingham in Wisit Sasanatieng's Red Eagle. Hope to see more of that.
