Tony Jaa and Jeeja take time out for flood relief


The floods in Central Thailand have delayed filming on Tom-Yum-Goong 2, but director Prachya Pinkaew and stars Tony Jaa and Jeeja Yanin aren't just sitting around waiting for the waters to recede.

Along with execs from Sahamongkolfilm International, they've been doing a roadshow, handing out relief supplies and putting on movie screenings, complete with popcorn and cotton candy, in the flood-hit areas.

The photos here are from November 25 in Nakhon Chaisri, Nakhon Pathom, northwest of central Bangkok.

There's a couple more shots from reader Alex in comments to a previous post.

According to an item in The Nation's Soopsip column today, the 3D Tom-Yum-Goong 2 – a sequel to Tony Jaa's 2005 missing-elephant drama – has indeed been stalled by the flooding. The column gives no details on when filming might resume.

And, no, I don't know anything about the plot of the sequel, whether it's set in ancient or contemporary times or even if it's really a sequel at all.

  2. thank Alex.

    Tony looked ripped man, you can tell even if he's wearing the t-shirt.

    At least they are doing something active, you know to make people feel better. Even though the flood took away their earthly stuff, they still have each other and are happy together.


    I love Jeeja's face.
    Tony jaa is always my main man:)

  3. This movie could of been stretched to have a squeal. they rushed through it, its alot of holes in the plot that will leave you asking "how did he...." or "so what happened".
