Weekend Viewing: Tony Jaa Endorsed Short Film Sleep Walker And A Tom Yum Goong 2 Featurette

Tony Jaa is really making the most of his return to acting, following his time away in a monastery, with a number of projects currently in various stages of development, production or post-production.

One that I’m particularly looking forward to is Tom Yom Goong 2, in part because of Jaa but also because of the other talented performers who will appear on screen and the incredible talent behind the camera.

A new featurette for the film was released this week and it focuses one of the talented performers we will see on screen, Jeeja Yanin.

Also linked to on Tony Jaa’s official Facebook page this week was a video entitled Sleep Walker. It’s a short film starring “Ying” Julaluck Ismalone and directed by David Ismalone, the action director on the upcoming film A Man Will Rise starring Jaa and Dolph Lungren.

I’m not convinced about all of the framing choices in that short but Ismalone certainly knows how to make a punch, kick or fall really hit on screen. His debut feature, Mystic Blade, is reportedly finished and I look forward to seeing what he’s done with a larger budget and more time.
