Columbia Tristar Buena Vista to distribute Thai films

Seeing Thai films regularly top the local box office -- Phobia 2 (Haa Phrang) is the latest to hit the 100-million-baht mark -- Hollywood's distributors want a piece of the action.

So Columbia Tristar Buena Vista Films (Thailand) has signed a deal to handle Thai movies, according to stories today by The Nation and the Bangkok Post.

The company will distribute films by Oriental Eyes, the studio set up to release films starring Princess Ubolratana. These include the action film My Best Bodyguard and the historical battle drama Legend of the Queen -- movies being promoted at the Thailand Entertainment Expo.

The Post also says a movie called Secret Sunday is part of the deal.

If successful, the deal could lead to distribution of Thai films overseas.
