“Ong Bak 3” acquired by Magnet Releasing

HollywoodNews.com: The Wagner/Cuban Company’s Magnet Releasing, genre arm of Magnolia Pictures announced today that it has acquired US rights to Sahamongkolfilm International’s “Ong Bak 3,” the third and final installment in one of the most beloved martial arts series of all time. International superstar Tony Jaa once again writes, directs and stars. Picking up at the cliffhanger ending where Ong Bak 2 leaves off, Jaa ramps up the epic supernatural elements of the previous film, while still maintaining the trademark bone-crunching action that the series is known for. This time he must face his ultimate enemy: a fierce supernatural warrior named “Demon Crow,” played by fellow martial arts sensation Dan Chupong (Dynamite Warrior). Eagerly anticipated by martial arts aficionados for some time, the matchup of Jaa and Chupong is explosive.

Since Tony Jaa was introduced to the US by Magnolia in 2005 in Ong Bak, he has grown to be the most beloved action import since Jackie Chan. Magnet released Ong Bak 2 in 2009, and will release ONG BAK 3 in theaters on January, 2011.

“Tony Jaa is undoubtedly the greatest martial arts star of our time,” said Magnet SVP Tom Quinn. “We’re thrilled to be taking our journey with Tony full circle by bringing ONG BAK 3 to his American fans.”

Quinn negotiated the deal with Sahamongkolfilm International’s Gilbert Lim.
