A general surveys the battlefield
Director and martial-arts choreographer Panna Rittikrai oversees the location of Ong Bak 2 in Rayong Province, where a 25-million Khmer-style palace has been built by set designer Ek Iemcheun. It includes an arena big enough for elephant battles! More about the palace is included in an earlier post.
According to a Daily Xpress item today (Page 7), the Born to Fight director is co-directing the Bt300-million movie with his long-time protege, action star Tony Jaa. Despite troubles with Tony a couple of months ago, Ong Bak 2 is nearly finished and is on track for release in Thai cinemas on December 4.
