ONG BAK 3
Ong Bak 3 is said to be a direct sequel to the second movie, so it should follow the story and period setting of Ong Bak 2. Currently they’re shooting in Thailand, and Sahamongkol Film expects to release Ong Bak 3 in December 2009 in their home country.
Here below a first teaser poster of Ong Bak 3:
The end of the second movie was a bit disappointing, hope they will make it better in Ong Bak 3!
Update we now have more Ong Bak 3 plot details:
“The legend of Ong Bak 3 begins after Tien (Tony Jaa) has lost his fighting skills and his beloved step-father at the Garuda’s Wing cliff from the raid led by Jom Rachan (Saranyu Wonggrajang). Tien is brought back to life with the help from Pim (Primrata Dechudom) as well as Mhen (Petchai Wongkamlao) and the Kana Khone villagers. Deep into the meditation taught by Phra Bua (Nirutti Sirijanya), Tien finally is able to achieve ‘Nathayut’. His talents are put to the test again when his rivals including the Golden-Armored King’s Guard (Supakorn ‘Tok’ Kijusuwan), the mysterious killers in black, and Bhuti Sangkha (Dan Chupong) return for the final massive showdown.”
A final massive showdown in the movie On Bak 3: bring it on! But please do let a door open for Ong Bak 4!
