Get ready for something different, Tony Jaa fans. Having built his early notoriety at least partially on the promise of no wires and no CGI enhancement in the action and stunt sequences of his previous films Jaa and director Prachya Pinkaew are utilizing both for the upcoming Tom Yum Goong 2
Though a rarity in the work of action choreographer Panna Rittikrai, he has shown a willingness to dip into both areas when the action calls for it. Mercury Man
and Dynamite Warrior
both made extensive use of both wire and CGI work, for example, and even the much more raw Born To Fight
includes one notable CGI gag. This is a first for Jaa, however, one necessitated by some of the 3D gags in the upcoming film.
With a tentative May release date set for Thailand there will not likely be a trailer for the film until the spring but watch for it here on ScreenAnarchy as soon as it appears.
