Late filmmaker and Thai action icon Panna Rittikrai departed us back in July. But in turn, he made sure he went out doing what he loved most, which, for all intents and purposes, included entertaining the hell out of us both in front, as well as behind the camera. As such, his parting gift, now in the form of Vengeance Of An Assassin, looks to do one of either of those things, with action star Dan Chupong who literally comes in with guns (and feet) blazing in several new behind-the-scenes clips for the new film.
Chupong stars as Natee, an assassin whose assignment to kill the daughter of a local businessman goes awry when he refuses, all the while secretly infiltrating the same circles where he suspects to find the people responsible for the death of his parents. This plot is a perfect set up for just the kind of film fans can enjoy with Chupong at the center of it all, having previously worked with Rittikrai on films like Dynamite Warrior and the 2004 remake of Born To Fight. Moreover, it’s also refreshing to see Chupong back on screen, having been such a big deal upon news of the film’s developmental existence a few years ago.
The film will make its American Film Market in Santa Monica this Friday at 3:00pm Broadway Cineplex #3, and on the following Sunday at 5:00pm Doubletree #2 before heading to Thai screens at the tail end of next week, so with any luck, we’ll learn more about this exciting film soon enough. In the meantime, Twitchfilm shared two featurettes you can view just below, to which we also have a third just beneath that presents quite an interesting (meaning painful and scorching) game of soccer. Ouch…just ouch.
Chupong is joined by Nattawut Boonrabsap, Ping Lumprapleng, Thana Sinprasat, ML.Sureewan Suriyong, Nisachol Tuomsoongnern and Master Xi Fu. Watch the vids below and check out some of the latest character posters as well just beneath!
