Ong-Bak 2, The Bodyguard 2 and more...
Posted by Sawatdee, 18/03/2007

Updates about Ong-Bak 2 :
     • An oblation ceremony before the filming of Ong-Bak 2 took place in Thailand on February 22, 2007.
     • Ong-Bak 2 is now filming in Thailand, no release date yet.
     • Like previously mentioned, Tony Jaa is the leading actor AND the director, for the first time of his career, making him a certified badass. He'll be accompanied by the well-known director and martial arts choreographer Panna Rittikrai who will also act as the producer, the action choreographer, and the production manager. Besides Tony and Panna who lead the ceremony, it is crowded by a lot of big and competent Thai film stars, such as Pongpat Wachirabanjong, Nirut Sirijanya, Patthama Panthong. And there is a new girl, Janista ChoochuaiSuwan (nickname, Em) who is the leading actress.

Ong-Bak 2 is the gigantic project features Tony Jaa as the captain who has developed his own screenplay. Tony: “Besides being the leading actor, I also take the seat of director. This movie is different from the first Ong-Bak, because Ong-Bak 2 depicts the Thai older period of Ayuthaya. We offer a new style of fighting adapted from Khon Dance Performance called Muay Khon. We always try something new for our fans.”

This March 2007 is the time for Ong-Bak 2 to begin its full gear production. May Tony Jaa fans and martial arts movie fans have to wait for its release date announced later.

The Bodyguard 2 has been released in Thailand on March 8, 2007. This is the follow up of The Bodyguard, two movies directed by Petchtai Wongkamlao. Tony Jaa has a cameo appearance in both films.
     • The gallery has been updated with pictures, posters and wallpapers of the film.
     • The Bodyguard 2 Official Site is now online with a trailer, some pictures and a game.
     • Buy the official Soundtrack of The Bodyguard 2 at Ethaicd.com as well as the Karaoke VCD.


More about Tony Jaa's appearance at the official site : “Tony Jaa shows some funny gags and very cool Muay fightings in The Bodyguard 2”

Wherever Mum Jokmok is, Tony Jaa is also there. These two guys have become the perfectly joined buddies since the much well-known Ong-Bak 1 to the gigantically budgeted Tom-Yum-Goong. Now in 2007 without exception, the director Petchtai WongKamlao (Mum Jokmok) again invites the worldly popular “Tony ‘No-Sling-No-Stunt’ Jaa” to join a totally demolished fighting scene in The Bodyguard 2. This scene is set up somewhere in RCA (the popular teen-age area of Bangkok) as a noodle booth where Tony combatting against a gang of debt collectors, using his own unique of Muay Thai styles.

This is a scene where Kumlhao (Mum Johmok) and his talented music producer Master Thala (Sermwej ChuangYanyong) are sitting together, leisurely eating noodle and talking about their work. Without warning, a cruel gang of debt collectors passes by and sees Master Thala, the cunning debtor who they’d love so bad to collect the debt with blood. Suddenly, Tony Jaa (whose name in the story is unknown) runs across them with an annoying face, shouting ‘Chaang Kuu Yuu Nhai?!!’ (Where is my elephant?!!) that causes the gangsters much bewildered(??!!). With a lot of temper, the head of the gang goes straight forward to the unknown guy. But things turn out to be that this is not a day of the gangsters at all. Misfortunately, all of them are uncompromisingly beaten up by Tony Jaa, run away leaving the noodle booth completely collapsed. The art of fightings in this movie looks almost as delicious as in Tom-Yum-Goong, and so extremely touching that the sellers and onlookers at RCA cannot help cheering up Tony. Of course, it is rare for them to watch this type of live show from a world superstar right at their place.

Mum: “As I’ve said, I want The Bodyguard 2 to have more amount of and funnier actions. Tony Jaa is the first one in my head for inviting him to particiapte in the movie. His action style is never questioned, but for him to show only the action is not my style of movie. I ask him to do some gags, and not only he is able to do some of them, he even enjoys playing them. He makes me laugh just to see him running up and annoyingly shouting “Where is my elephant?!!”. Come to see my movie to find out where is the elephant he’s looking for. Tony has his own stunt team to create their own beautiful styles of fighting. Even I myself have seen a lot of them before, today I still enjoy them, for Christ sake!

‘Mission Laughable’ is ready to rock your cinema, this March 8.

Updates for Ong-Bak 2
Posted by Sawatdee, 04/01/2007
 

Thep sent in the link to this article at nationmultimedia.com :

Ong-Bak 2 is not a sequel to Ong-Bak but a remake of "Ai Noom Saraphad Phid", a film Tony made with his mentor Panna Ritthikrai several years ago. The story, which literally means the man with poison, is about a man with two sides - good and evil.

Jaa and Panna are working on a complex choreography that melds muay thai (kick boxing) with khon. Jaa says he got the idea after meeting performance artist Pichet Klunchun during the Subhanahongsa Awards ceremony last year (You can download the video of this show on the website, thanks to Charro).

"Khon's main characters - phra [prince], yak [giant] and ling [monkey] represent different gestures. The phra character has a gracious, subtle style, while the yak is stronger, more aggressive and the ling is swift and agile. I will incorporate all three in my character."

Fans will see him fighting with a range of weapons, including the sword and the spear.

The script for the upcoming collaboration between Tony Jaa and Prachya Pinkaew "Daab Atamat" (Sword) was being developed by well-known writer Prapas Chonsalanon and Prachya suggested that Jaa run the project with Panna under their new company Aiyara Films.

Shooting for "Ong Bak 2" will begin in the new year and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2007.

Exciting !
