Prachya Pinkaew Chases the Elephant White with Djimon Hounsou

8 Comments

I hadn’t heard that “Ong Bak” director Prachya Pinkaew was looking to get into the English-language movie scene until I stumbled across this report that the Thai director had signed on with Zero Gravity Management for his beyond-Thailand representation. The short article also mentions that Pinkaew is currently at work prepping his first English-ish language movie, the actioner “Elephant White” with Djimon Hounsou (“Blood Diamonds”).

While “Elephant White” will be Pinkaew’s first foray into making a movie for International audiences (one can reasonably assumed that with a Hollywood actor like Hounsou as the lead, this thing will have plenty of English dialogue, right?), he won’t necessarily have to leave the Thai border to do it. The plot has Housou playing an assassin who is hired by a businessman to avenge the murder of his daughter by white slave traders in Thailand.

“Elephant White” commences production in March on location in Bangkok.

Hold still, white elephant, hold still now!

        I like him alot, but Kratos he is not. I would hate to see him all painted up for the film. I think a better choice for that role is actually the king of the spartans himself, Gerard Butler, and if not him then get Sam Worthington(he’s already playing Perseus).
