More pulpy B-movie action!

The popularity of Tony Jaa, Ong-Bak and Tom Yum Goong is bringing more of Thailand's hard-working, hard-hitting B-movie directors to the fore.

The latest is Chartchai Maliwan, a veteran filmmaker who was a director at the studio where Tony Jaa's mentor, Panna Rittikrai, got his break into the movie biz.

The company, Pechpunna Production, did some early Tony Jaa titles, including Mission Hunter II, Wild Spirit Killer, Hard Gun and Battle Worrior (spelling's from the movie poster). They also did Panna's first Born to Fight.

Twitch has details about Dead End, including links to the movie's website and a trailer.

Dead End stars an action man named Michael B, who did some stunts in Ong-Bak. He's no Tony Jaa, but then, there's only one guy like that. Still, Dead End looks like a lot of fun.
