Indie distrib picks up Thai horror film

HONG KONG — New L.A.-based indie distributor 24 Frames has acquired North American rights to Thai horror pic “Alone” (Faet) for its extreme label.

Pic is the second from co-directors Banjong Pisanthanakun and Parkpoom Wongpoom, whose debut feature “Shutter” was a left-field hit in 2005 and has been picked up for remake by Vertigo Entertainment and 20th Century Fox.

As part of its deal with producer GMM Tai Hub, 24 Frames has also acquired English-language remake rights to “Alone.” Story involves a woman who is haunted by the spirit of her dead Siamese twin.

24 Frames, headed by former Buena Vista Home Entertainment senior VP Ludo Cremers, focuses on thriller and horror titles.

Sales and acquisitions for the firm are headed by another Buena Vista Intl. alum Jesus De Sica.

Company plans to launch labels for the Latin and gay and lesbian market segments.
