HANUMAN: BTS Posts Tease Khmer Martial Arts Action And Thrills Featuring ‘The Paper Tigers’ And ‘Fast Vengenace’ Actors
Little is all but known about what lies ahead for director Pearry Reginald Teo’s next endeavor, save for the fact that he’s already deep into his next project, Hanuman, which sees him partnering once again with his Fast Vengeance star D.Y. Sao.
The film also has actor and stunt performer Brian Le on board, among the cadre of hard-working and hard-earning fire and brimstone martial arts action stunt troupe, Martial Club, best known for exceling in recent hit box office feats like Well Go USA’s The Paper Tigers, Andy Long’s Luc Van Tien: KungFu Hustle and Marvel’s Shang-Chi And The Legend Of The Ten Rings.
Hanuman was supposed to be filmed in Thailand months ago with the involvement of Prachya Pinkaew (Ong Bak, Tom Yum Goong) in a behind-the-scenes capacity, until Covid became a factor and lockdowns upended those prospects. Shooting instead is underway in Kentucky, and with little else to go on except for a few nuggets to share via social media which you can view below (the photo atop the page was a concept image – one of four sent to me courtesy of the director prior to the preproduction debacle, and as such, there’s no absolute guarantee that it’ll be part of the final concept, so consider it a placeholder until further notice).
Teo’s a hard man to keep in touch with, but I couldn’t miss the opportunity to post something. I’ll try to keep my antennae up here on this one for sure.
