Gearing up for an imminent start to production with principal photography just weeks away is Ong Bak director Prachya Pinkaew’s The Kick.
Revolving around a Korean family of taekwondo masters living in Bangkok The Kick will see Pinkaew bring some new moves to his repertoire.
Popular Thai comedian Mum Jokmok – Dirty Balls in Ong Bak – is coming along for the ride on this one as is Chocolate leading lady Jija Yanin.
Making Yanin’s involvement particularly interesting is that taekwondo is actually her first discipline, with muay thai being something she picked up specifically for Chocolate.
