  Tony Jaa Destined To Be One Of Jackie's Drunks! [read more]
  Ong-Bak is THAT intoxicating!
  Well, there has been some speculation, but it seems likely now this speculation may actually be true – apparently, rising Thai star Tony Jaa is to star as the pupil under Jackie Chan in the upcoming Drunken Master 3. Information is sketchy, but apparently the two had a talk about it when Jackie was over to promote his movie, The New Police Story.

But still, this could be years away – so for the moment, we can make do with Tony Jaa’s new flick, Ong-Bak: The Thai Master, due for release on February 11th. Directed by Prachya Pinkaew, who has been working on this since 1999, Ong-Bak tells the story of orphaned Muay Thai protégé Ting (Jaa), travelling to the mean streets of Bangkok, competing in illegal street fights against both local and foreign opponents, in an effort to retrieve the head of his village’s Ong-Bak (Buddha statue) stolen by a former native in an attempt to find favour with ruthless crime boss, Khom Tuan.

Both Jaa and Pinkaew are notable for their insistence on “keeping it real”, refusing to use any wires, CGI or camera-tricks to enhance Ong-Bak – a move that will be welcomed by millions of “old-school” kung-fu fans worldwide – and, thanks to this, the movie’s stunt sequences are apparently all the more breathtaking. The response the movie has earned so far has all been good, and you can see the trailer online at http://www.apple.com/trailers/independent/ong_bak-tlr.html
