Well Go USA is set to release action star Tony Jaa’s latest martial arts crime thriller Kill Zone 2. The film is directed by Soi Cheang, working from a script by Jill Leung Lai Yin and Wong Ying and stars Jaa (Ong-Bak, The Protector), along with Hong Kong megastars Wu Jing, Simon Yam, Zhang Jin (Ip Man 3) and Louis Koo.
Kill Zone 2 centers on an undercover cop (Tony Jaa) who gets close to revealing the mastermind of a drug syndicate before his cover is blown. Double-crossed and under a false identity, he’s thrown into a Thai prison, where a guard discovers the inmate – claiming he’s a cop – is a bone marrow match for his dying daughter…and his warden may have an even deadlier operation hidden within the prison walls.
This frenetic follow-up to modern martial arts epic Kill Zone (aka SPL: Sha Po Lang) is not being labeled a sequel. It’s described as a breakneck story of dirty cops, prison riots and black market organ transplants, all brought together by a non-stop series of inventive, bone-crunching set pieces.
Kill Zone 2 will hit theaters and On Demand May 13th. Check out the trailer, poster and some set images from the film, below.
