Jeeja does comedy in Jakkalan
In addition to Chocolate 2 and her supporting role in the Thai-South Korean co-production The Kick, Jeeja Yanin has another movie coming out soon.
The Chocolate and Raging Phoenix star looks pretty capable at combining kicks with comedy in Jakkalan (จั๊กกะแหล๋น). Riding a trendy fixed-gear bicycle, she's aiming the business end of her high-top tennis shoes at a bunch of bad guys in the crime farce, which is directed by and also starring Jeeja's The Kick castmate Petthai "Mum Jokmok" Wongkumlao. It's produced under Mum's Bang Fai Productions. The cast is rounded out by the usual faces in Thai comedies, including Kom Chuanchuen, "Tukky" Sudarat Butrprom and Teng Terdterng as well as Mum's Yam Yasothon co-star Janet Kiew.
The trailer is playing in Thai cinemas now, and it's scheduled for release on April 28.
Update: Twitch as a look at the promo reel for The Kick.
