Director Krissanapong Rachata returns to the big screen this week with a new action comedy The Microchip (ชิป /หาย, Chip/Hai). He's the director of Power Kids (5 หัวใจฮีโร่, Ha Huajai Heroes, a.k.a. Force of Five).
The Microchip is produced by Film Frame, the same company that did the pair of action fests with stuntman Mike B., Brave and The Sanctuary, and has a pedigree that goes all the way back to the B-movie days of Panna Rittikrai.
The Microchip has an everyman named John (Akarin Akaranitimetharat) who accidentally comes across computer chip belonging to a gangster. He and his colorful friends then get into all sorts of trouble trying to return the gizmo to its owner.
Anuwat Tarapan, Jazz Chuancheun and Kom Chuanchuen are among the huge supporting cast of characters in this madcap tale.
The movie also introduces a new stunt talent, Simon Kook, who with his long hair and grim demeanor looks to be in the mold of Tony Jaa. And indeed, according to the studio's website, he's been a stand-in for Jaa as well as Johnny Tri Nguyen. He plays an unstoppable cop in The Microchip.
Follow the movie on its Facebook page, where you'll find a line to a behind-the-scenes video. There's also a trailer, embedded below.
