The Nation's roundup of coming attractions for 2013, due out sometime this year, perhaps in May, is Tom-Yum-Goong 2, which will see the return of Tony Jaa to the big screen, and for the first time in 3D.
Directed by Prachya Pinkaew with action choreography by Panna Rittikrai, the project has been long in the works, owing to production delays and Tony juggling a new marriage and fatherhood.
No one seems to know what exactly the film is about. The only hint comes from the cryptic Tinglish tagline: "This time the fight get beyond."
Twitch recently posted that it "marks the end of the no wire, no CGI era for Tony Jaa."
When TYG2 was first announced, it was touted as an all-star project involving not only Tony Jaa but also Tony's Ong-Bak 3 enemy Diew Choopong from Born to Fight and Dynamite Warrior plus Chocolate heroine Jeeja Yanin.
But now perhaps neither Diew nor Jeeja are actually involved. Or maybe they are. Only when the film is released will anyone be totally certain of what it's about or who's in it.
An accompanying Soopsip column in today's Nation sows more confusion, revealing that Jeeja is now pregnant!
Meanwhile, action guru Panna has prepped a new action star, stunt-team member "Wut" Nantawut Boonrubsub, for another project called Reaw Talu Reaw, which will also star Diew Choopong.
More on that when it is actually released.
Back to TYG2, it was announced months ago that newly minted martial-arts actor-director RZA had been added to the mix that already included RZA's stunt double Marese Crump. And as an aside, RZA's The Man with the Iron Fists comes to Thai cinemas this week.
