After the premiere of Ghost Lab last month, Netflix is ready to offer more original Thai content. The mega streaming platform has just announced the premiere date for its latest Thai mystery thriller, Deep.
The film showcases the young Thai talent, with a next-gen production crew and a fresh, up-and-coming cast.
Deep was produced by Bangkok University students with support from veteran filmmakers Adirek “Uncle” Wattaleela and Wisit Sasanatieng in a collaboration between Transformation Films and the school.
The movie explores the lives of four medical students who sign up for a B1 million pharmaceutical experiment that sees them testing a new drug that could put them into a state of sleep deprivation. The cast is led by four new actors: Panisara “Care” Rikulsurakan, Kay Lertsitthichai, Suphanari “Fern” Suttawijitwong, and Krit Jeerapattananuwong.
“The inspiration behind the film is essentially what we have to face in everyday reality. Young people my age often have to live with sleep deprivation… and this led us to the question—what [could] we achieve by giving up sleep?” screenwriter Kittitat Nokngam revealed in a press release.
Deep will debut on Netflix on July 16. Watch the trailer here.
