Tony Jaa is one of the absolute best martial artists out there. His Ong Bak films are legendary and The Protector is one of my personal favorite fighting flicks of all-time.
Now, it’s time for Jaa to make his US film debut in James Wan‘s Fast & Furious 7.
That’s right, Jaa will now have the chance to possibly go toe-to-toe with Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and maybe even Jason Statham.
His role hasn’t been detailed yet, but he’s definitely confirmed for the film, which will start shooting in September for a July 11th, 2014 release.
I’m extremely happy with this news, because Jaa is an amazing talent to acquire for any film and I believe that Wan’s involvement alone will already make this one different than Justin Lin‘s previous installments.
Hoping for the best and hoping that Fast 7 delivers where Fast 6 didn’t.
