Tony Jaa is MIA?

07.28.2008
If you were looking forward to the skull-splintering action of ONG-BAK 2, you might have to wait a while longer.

It seems that acrobatic Thai whirlwind Tony Jaa has pulled a Dave Chappelle, and just up and disappeared in the midst of his latest project. Besides starring and bone-breaking, Jaa was making his directing debut on the sequel to the popular martial arts flick... but is apparently "missing" since June, leaving the production incomplete. The project generated buzz at Cannes thanks to the weapon-wielding, face-stomping sizzle reel.

According to some reports, Jaa was having a tough time with the budget and schedule, and has "gone to meditate in the jungle". Longtime collaborator Prachya Pinkaew, who directed Jaa in ONG-BAK and TOM YUM GOONG (aka THE PROTECTOR), has agreed to edit the existing footage (apparently the movie was nearly complete) and direct additional scenes as needed.
Extra Tidbit: ONG-BAK 2 is (or was) scheduled for released in Thailand in December.
