Move aims to cash in on gov't plan to promote Thailand

BANGKOK — Thailand’s top entertainment company, GMM Grammy, has set up a production services arm to entice more Hollywood producers to shoot films here.

The move is aimed at cashing in on the government’s ambitious plan to promote Thailand as the foreign production hub of the region.

GMM recently worked with Columbia Pictures, which shot Rob Cohen’s “Stealth” in Bangkok and northern Thailand.

The production services arm, called the 6th Element, will be headed by Sasipa Aungvaribud and Pakinee Chaisana, who worked on “The Killing Fields.”

Boosaba Daoruang, GMM Grammy’s CEO, says the firm is talking to other Hollywood companies about shooting in Thailand.
