We never know, if you travel to Bangkok in a couple of years, maybe you'll find a bootleg VCD on some street market :wink:

I hope so, but the movie not being completed and disregarded by the production/distribution company that might be more unlikely than with other titles...

So now after the all the aborted "development hell" project that were never shot, we have one with production stills to make us fantasize and despair even more about what it could have been. And the mix of the 1950s western set in Thailand with Elvis-haired Tony Jaa martial arts extravaganza, fighting against mustached Dolph and his minions seemed utterly and awesomely wacked... :D (not like any US -originated DTV these days)

You also returned to Thailand for a couple of projects, including a co-starring role in the Tony Jaa and Dolph Lundgren actioner A Man Will Rise

I was called by my good friend David Ismalone and asked if I'd like to come over and work with him (we play Dolph's cowboy sidekicks). This was interesting as I like working in Thailand, and Tony Jaa is THE big star there, and I was going to get a chance to kick his butt. Plus, I have followed Dolph's career and he has been an inspiration for me. He used to live in Sydney, Australia where he worked as a security guard at one of the nice night clubs. When he left and made it as an actor his story became a legend and a distant hope for many other doormen, a few of whom were part time actors doing thug and security roles on TV and in commercials. I was one of them. It was good to get a chance to talk to Dolph about this and get the story straight from him and truth be told the only difference from the urban legend and the truth was his hard work and determination – he had a bit of luck to start but he took the opportunity, prepared and made it into something, a lesson for others.

I wonder if the company is intrrested to finish the film. If the Dolph part is wraped they could recall Tony to finish his scenes.

I understand this correctly now. Man working again on this film. If so, I look forward enormously to this film.

Dolph is still a real Action Hero !!

They're obviously not (interested in finishing the film), they're kind of a mob/mafia company who stopped the production just because they couldn't see their home-made star go way, and tried to make him still liable to them for another 10 year contract... It's doubtful they'll ever complete the movie.

Don't keep false hopes for this film, it's not in the work again (the Conan Stevens article above is from 2013) and likely won't be released because of the reasons I've just stated above.
