Thai producer-distributor GMM Tai Hub (GTH) has struck an English-language remake deal for Alone with US start-up 24 Frames.

GTH's Phailin Amnuaiporn and 24 Frames' Ludo Cremers concluded the deal in Cannes following the film's market premiere. The deal also covers US distribution rights to the original film. Cremers was a former senior executive at Buena Vista.

This marks the second remake deal in a row for Thai directors Parkpoom Wongpoom and Banjong Pisanthanakun whose directorial debut Shutter is in the midst of a Hollywood remake. Both Alone and Shutter are produced by GTH.

GTH scored more deals for Alone in Cannes, including Delta Films for Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador and Uni-Korea for Korea. The picture has been widely sold to a string of territories, including France, Benelux, Brazil, Mexico, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and Indonesia as Screendaily previously reported.

The story follows Thai singer-model-TV actress Marsha Wattanapanich who has to confront her secret past - the ghost of her long dead Siamese twin - when she returns from Korea to visit her dying mother in Thailand.

GTH has also pre-sold Body to Taiwan 's Top Capital in Cannes. The suspense thriller, directed by Paween Purijitpanya, is scheduled for release in the third quarter of this year.
