Sia Jiang: There will be an Ong-Bak 3
Talk about a sequel to Ong-Bak 2 has been dismissed as rumor and nothing more. This is despite the abrupt ending of Ong-Bak 2 and an epilogue that pretty much states there will be a sequel.
Now Sahamongkol Film International head honcho Somsak "Sia Jiang" Techaratanaprasert is saying there will most definitely be an Ong-Bak 3, and that it will start filming "before the end of the year", according to a story in today's Daily Xpress.
And, it won't take too much time to make, because there's a lot of footage shot for Ong-Bak 2 that can be used.
The Daily Xpress' Parinyaporn Pajee caught up with Sia Jiang last week at a party to celebrate the box-office success of Ong-Bak 2 - it's topped 100 million baht, the first Thai film to hit that mark this year.
The party saw star and director Tony Jaa celebrating with producers Prachya Pinkaew, Panna Rittikrai and Sia Jiang.
Anyway, check out the Daily Xpress article for more about what Sia Jiang says and his thoughts about casting for Ong-Bak 4.
