FIREBALL Director Thanakorn Pongsuwon Going English Language And 3D With LETHAL STRIKE
Fireball director Thanakorn Pongsuwon may be the busiest man in Thailand right now. Not only does he have a pair of projects already on the go for Thai audiences - a prequel to Fireball and horror picture Bangkok Fable - but it has also just been announced that in March he will begin production on Lethal Strike, an underground fight film to be shot largely in English and in 3D. Here's the official word:

In Thailand, during a period of violence and corruption, a brutal new underground tournament has emerged, pitting Muay Thai fighters against each other in a deadly arena known as THE DOG TANK. In this dangerous world, an American operative and a Muay Thai boxer form a reluctant alliance. One fights for justice - while the other fights for revenge.

Pongsuwon will be matching an English speaking cast with many of his regular Thai fighters for this - yes, the keen eyed among you do spot one of the stars of Fireball in that poster art - to hopefully bring the best of both.

LETHAL STRIKE could well be Thailand's first 3D fictional feature. The Academy Fantasia 3D concert movie just doesn't count in my book. I want elbows to MY head, in 3D. I hope Thanakorn pulls it off.

Wrong info : the fist 3D fictional feature already started making early this year. It also speaks Thai, and will be released in 2011.

What is it?

Further news on this, it appears that Fireball Begins is being abandoned and that a lot of the material from it is going to be reworked and used in this. they're not the same project, exactly, as the story lines are going to be significantly different, but a lot of the work from Fireball is going to be used in this instead.
