With production under way of the Tony Jaa directed A Man Will Rise, Twitch has landed a trio of new images from the set including one of Jaa manning the monitors plus on screen action from co-star Dolph Lundgren and Jaa himself who, true to the film's title, appears to be rising. Heh. I couldn't resist.

The film is an action film with comedy elements set in 1950's Thailand. A local gangster terrorizes a town. When a young local man stands up to the gangster the villain brings in a group of foreign hit men who like to dress as cowboys to pacify the town. Ultimately only one man can rise up to bring them down and save the town.
This marks Jaa's second directorial effort and this time he's bringing his longtime mentor Panna Rittikrai along with Vitidnan Rojanapanich to assist with Rittikrai choreographing the action along with David Ismalone.

    Right, because last time that worked so well.... O wait

  • Mike

    Wait, he's directing? I must have missed that in the earlier stories.

  • Just confirmed that, yeah. I knew that one of the possible new projects floating out was for him to direct himself and this is it.
