Buyers wake up for Five Star’s 3AM
Thailand’s Five Star Production is lining up a second 3D horror, 3AM, following the Asian box office success of its first such production, Dark Flight 3D.
The film has already been pre-sold to several Asian territories including Taiwan (Deepjoy Pictures), Hong Kong (Encore Films) and Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei (Clover Films).
Scheduled for delivery in autumn 2012, 3AM comprises three separate short stories from established Thai directors.
Patchanon Thammajira’s The Wig follows two sisters haunted by evil dolls in a wig shop, and has brought on board DoP Teerawat Rujintham, whose credits include Tom Yum Goong 2, which was shot in 3D.
Kirati Nakintanon’s segment follows a man who gets an eerie job looking after the corpses of a bridge and groom, while Isara Nadee’s The Blind Man is about a man with severe myopia who starts to have strange visions.
Deepjoy, Encore and Clover Films also acquired Dark Flight 3D, about a flight attendant who survives a plane crash but later finds herself working on the same plane.
