The horror-comedy, now in post-production, is budgeted at US$500,000 and has already been pre-sold to Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei and Thailand.

InnoForm Media has also appointed Hong Kong's Fortune Star as its international sales agent for both Just Follow Law and Men In White. The collaboration strengthens the already close ties between the two companies.

InnoForm Media is working with Fortune Star, Media Development Authority of Singapore and Boku Films on Kelvin Tong's next movie Rule Number One. The horrror thriller, is budgeted at US$1 million and will begin principal photography in June.

The fourth film on InnoForm Media's slate is the erotic drama Pleasure Factory, directed by Ekachai Uekrongtham. The film, now in post-production, is a co-production with Ekachai's Spicy Apple Productions. The film, based on Singapore's night life at its red-light district, is aiming for festivals and will be released in cinemas after the second quarter of the year.

InnoForm Media is now in talks to co-produce another 2 films, and hopes that newly added portfolio of movie production will complement and enhance its core business of video distribution.
