U.S. distrib, remake on the table
Alone, the joint directorial effort from Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom (both of Shutter fame), now has a home for U.S. distribution through 24 frames’ new extreme label. The outfit recently purchased the rights for the directors’ second Thai feature film at the Cannes Film Fest and intend to capitalize on the acquisition with a proposed remake as well. Delving into the world of conjoined twins, the story follows a young woman named Pim who is haunted by the ghost of her deceased sister whom she was separated from years ago.
“‘Alone’ is a cut above the wave of horror titles released in recent years,” says 24 frames pres Ludo Cremers. “It very much represents what our new label 24 frames extreme is all about: high impact, memorable, edge of your seat thrillers and horror films from around the world. We will thrill you into a good time you won’t soon forget.”
Pisanthanakun and Wongpoom’s Shutter, released via Tartan Home Video here in the States, is currently on the remake track with Masayuki Ochiai directing for Fox. Joshua Jackson and Rachael Taylor star.
