Shou among Angels
The guys behind ONG BAK are tired of having to dub their movies for international release, so they're gonna make one in English with another martial-arts butt kicker, Robin Shou. Where have you been since MORTAL KOMBAT? Oh wait, that question kind of answers itself...
Director Prachya Pinkaew joins forces again with stunt coordinator Panna Rittikrai for CITY OF ANGELS, which really should get itself another title; I can think of two other films using it that I wish to hell I hadn't seen.
Shou will not only headline but provide the script about...heck I dunno what it's about, but I'd expect dialogues to be limited at "oomph" and "ugh" and "sprrrrl". Just a guess.
Some reports have Dwayne Johnson co-starring, but CITY OF ANGELS" href="http://twitchfilm.net/news/2009/10/ong-bak-team-going-english-language-for-robin-shous-city-of-angels.php" target="_blank">Twitch contributor Todd Brown, who's also an exec producer on the film, says that's complete bullocks. Besides, the Rock is busy making family comedies for Disney now. Not really good ones, either.
|Extra Tidbit:||To be fair, Robin Shou recently starred in STREET FIGHTER: LEGEND OF CHUN-LI. Yeah, I think it's better to stay with MORTAL KOMBAT after all.|
