Ong Bak 3 Heads to the U.S. Via Magnet Releasing

Tony Jaa’s “Ong Bak 3” hasn’t exactly gotten a lot of rave reviews, but that hasn’t stopped Magnet Releasing (the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures) from acquiring the film for domestic release. Given Jaa’s popularity among action fans, that seems like a no-brainer.

“Ong Bak 3” is scheduled for limited release in theaters sometime in January 2011.

The third and final film in the “Ong Bak” franchise returns star, director, and writer Tony Jaa, this time facing off against a supernatural warrior named Demon Crow (played by fellow Thai martial artist Dan Chupong). Much stuntman-wrecking and bone-crunching action ensues.
