MARRESE CRUMP STARS OPPOSITE TONY JAA FOR PROTECTOR 2All star cast continues to grow for this Thai action sequel
Bangkok, Thailand - August 17, 2011 - The collaboration between the prominent American martial artist and legendary action director Panna Rittikrai is much sooner than previously arranged. The Protector sequel, locally titled Tom Yum Goong 2, is to now set the stage for the much anticipated appearance of Crump facing the series' star, Tony Jaa.
Marrese Crump's project "Formless", set to be directed by Rittikrai and already boasts a hard hitting cast, is next in line after the filming of Protector 2. The sequel's cast also includes "Chocolate" star Jija Yanin, Dan Chupong and Kazu Tang, which has everyone expecting this to be the studio's most action packed movie so far.
In the Opening Ceremony to kick off production earlier today, Panna Rittikrai, who reprises his position directing the action, has stated he is very excited to be working with Marrese Crump, Tony Jaa and the rest of the action lineup, while Prachya Pinkaew directs and produces.
Marrese Crump has recently come back from the set of RZA's "The Man With The Iron Fists" in Shanghai China, now in post-production, and is looking forward to Protector 2 with many more projects to follow. More information on him can be found at his website at www.marresecrump.com.
