Tony Jaa injured

Tony Jaa has been injured during the filming of Tom Yum Goong in Australia, according to some press reports I can't put my hands on right now. I'm unaware of the extent of his injuries, though I am led to believe they are minor. However, completion of the followup to Ong Bak has been put off until April.

In the meantime, Tom Yum Goong is expected to be the closing film of the 2005 Bangkok International Film Festival, something I didn't think was going to happen anyway, since the film was due to be released until March. Festival officials are going to be doing some fast talking for this gala closing event, which will really amount to no more than a screening of a preview reel or maybe some daily rushes from the set.
