Singapore’s Zhao Wei Films and Hong Kong-based Distribution Workshop are co-producing Eric Khoo’s erotic drama, In The Room, which started shooting in Singapore today.

Distribution Workshop’s Nansun Shi is producing and the script is co-written by Khoo and Jonathan Lim.

The high-concept erotic drama is set in a single room in a Singapore hotel over a time period spanning from World War II to the future.

Six short stories, all directed by Khoo, revolve around six different couples and explore Singapore’s history, along with changing attitudes to sex, love and relationships. The pan-Asian cast includes Hong Kong actress Josie Ho.

The film marks Khoo’s first feature since Tatsumi, an animation about manga artist Yoshihiro Tatsumi, which premiered at Cannes in 2011. Khoo is also one of seven Singaporean filmmakers directing a short for an omnibus film to celebrate Singapore’s 50th anniversary.
