The hero in what Thais will call Sam Pan Bohk (สามพันโบก) might be played by Thai action star Pairote "Mike B" Boongerd, but it's the participation of Hong Kong and Hollywood veteran Russell Wong that's being played up by producers at Film Frame and director Thanapon Maliwan.
Russell's character is well suited for the script. And once we started worked together, I was very impressed by his dedication and professionalism," says the director.
In fact, the version of the Daily Xpress article that somehow managed to find its way online doesn't even mention poor Mike B's name.
And on the new poster, it's the white-suited Russell Wong at dead center, pointing a big pistol who captures all the attention, while Mike B is crouching below with his head hanging down. Nang Nak and Naresuan star Intira Jaroenpura floats ethereally in the background, and a menacing-looking Pathawarin Timkul brings up the rear, with her pistol ready to back up her bad-guy boyfriend.
Wong's character is an ex-military operative, hired to recover ancient stolen treasure. Trying to stop him will be Mike B., the descendant of that lost treasure's guards. Intira is an archaeologist who will help.
