Cannes 2010: GTH presells Shutter director's solo bow
Banjong Pisanthanakun (บรรจง ปิสัญธนะกูล), half of the duo of directors who made studio GTH's hit horror thrillers Shutter (ชัตเตอร์ กดติดวิญญาณ) and Alone (แฝด), has completed filming his solo feature debut.
The movie is called Knowing Me, Knowing You, and is a travel romance shot in South Korea. It marks a new direction for Banjong, who co-directed the thrillers Shutter and Alone with Parkpoom Wongpoom and helmed the horror-comedy segments of the Phobia and Phobia 2 horror-short anthologies.
Screen Daily's Liz Shackleton is reporting from the Cannes Film Market that Knowing Me, Knowing You had a distribution pre-sale to Queen Film in Indonesia.
The movie comes out at the end of July or early August, says Screen Daily.
Also in the works for studio GTH: a Hindi remake to Alone, the story of a woman haunted by her twin sister, and a Mandarin remake of BTS: Bangkok Traffic (Love) Story, about a single 30-year-old woman's fleeting romance with a skytrain maintenance engineer.
