Pang Bros update: Remaker on DVD in Hong Kong, Eye sequel in 3-D

Remaker (Kon Raruek Chat, คนระลึกชาติ), a 2005 karmic thriller directed by Mona Nahm and produced by Oxide Pang, is set for release on DVD this week by Kam & Ronson in Hong Kong.

It's the story of Tom, an antiques dealer on his way to deliver a Buddha statue, when his truck plunges off a bridge and into the river. He is rescued by a woman named Pim, who happens to be passing by. He is rushed to hospital and recovers, but finds he's having strange visions about the future, and somehow comes to understand that Pim's rescuing him wasn't just a coincidence.

Thai soap stars Andrew Gregson and Phiyada Akkraseranee are the principals.

If I remember correctly, Remaker might have been a loose remake of Oxide's 1997 directorial debut, Who Is Running?, or maybe it just explored similar karmic themes?

DDD House has it.

Meanwhile, it was announced awhile back that Danny and Oxide are planning a fourth film for their Eye franchise, The Child's Eye, and it'll be in 3-D. It'll be the third Eye sequel by the Pangs, following their 2002 hit that was remade by Hollywood with Jessica Alba, 2004's The Eye 2 starring Shu Qui and The Eye10 (or The Eye Infinity or The Eye 3), which was a teen-oriented horror comedy. Bloody Disgusting had more on The Child's Eye.

(Thanks Logboy!)
