It’s not a good idea to give Tony Jaa anything sacred or precious. Chances are someone is just going to steal it, kill it, or cook it. “Ong Bak” director Prachya Pinkaew’s “Tom Yum Goong 2” (aka “The Protector 2”) finds the hero from the original film searching for a missing elephant one more time. Here’s hoping he has better luck this time around.
In addition to Jaa, the upcoming sequel features Petchtai Wongkamlao, Marrese Crump, JeeJa Yanin, Dan Chupong, Rhatha Phongam, and RZA. I’m particularly excited about JeeJa Yanin’s involvement with the flick. I could literally watch that girl kick phone books for 90 minutes. Do people still use phone books? Never mind. I feel old.
Check out this synopsis:
Kham is the last in long line of guards who once watched over the King of Thailand’s war elephants. Traditionally, only the perfect elephants could successfully help defend the throne. After his harrowing quest to retrieve the elephants, Kham returns to his village to live in peace. But for someone as good in martial arts as him, peace is but a wishful thought.
If you need even more Tony Jaa in your life, the talented martial artist will appear in “The Conjuring” director James Wan’s “Fast and Furious 7” and the Dolph Lundgren flick “Skin Trade.” It’s definitely an exciting time to be a Jaa fan.
“Tom Yum Goong 2” opens across Thailand on October 23, 2013.
