Filmart Day 2: Nymph eyed for Cannes; Mono Film is now motif+

Following yesterday's first round of updates from Filmart in Hong Kong, here's a couple more items to pass along from Screen International's Fair Daily (PDF):
  • Five Star Production is promoting Slice, the upcoming crime thriller directed by Kongkiat Komesiri and written by Wisit Sasanatieng. It started shooting yesterday. Also, a sequel to the three-director romance Before Valentine (will they call it After Valentine?) is planned. And Pen-ek Ratanaruang's Nymph is in post-production and is definitely hoping for a slot at Cannes.
  • Mono Generation's film company, which most recently produced the award-winning Happy Birthday, is now called motif+ (yes, dammit, with a lowercase "m"). Producer-director Pantham Thongsang (Ai Fak, Mid-Road Gang) is the head of the division. The company's next film is the teen-oriented romance Roommate by Karun Komanuwong, director of last year's gender-swapping romance Valentine. A story about a rock band living in a apartment, Roommate was to have featured Mario Maurer, but he's no longer part of the project, according to Bangkok of the Mind. Pantham also has a project in the Hong Kong-Asian Film Financing Forum (HAF) -- Blood Maple and the Passion of the Kid, directed by Chartchai Ketnust.
