2015 just got better for fans of international action star Tony Jaa as he moves forward and beyond his historic career with the addition of three new titles so far, two of which will arriving as early as next month with the third to follow suit this summer.
SPL 2: A Time For Consequences kicks off its campaign this week ahead of its expected July release with specific dates and territories pending, following director Wilson Yip’s 2005 crime thriller, SPL, which signaled an artful return to form for the Hong Kong action genre headlining action star Donnie Yen at the time. This time, The Monkey King helmer Soi Cheang fills in the director’s chair with Yip taking on producer duties with Paco Wong with a script by Jill Leung and Huang Ying that will reintroduce the central astrological themes surrounding our characters, several of which will surely take primal form based on what these four new character posters below depict. Take a look!
After busting a local gangster Hong in an undercover operation, hard-boiled cop Kit is captured by Hong’s men and wakes up in jail in Thailand facing a life sentence. While in police custody, Hong strikes a deal with Kit’s supervisor Wah to trade his freedom for Kit’s. Wah traces Kit to Thailand and manages to convince to new prison guard Chai to help save Kit because Kit is one of the few eligible bone marrow donors who can save Chai’s daughter, who’s suffering from leukemia. Hong breaks out of jail and flees to Thailand and order Kit’s executive. When Kit learns of Hong’s jailbreak, he’s determined to bring him to justice.
