An upcoming screening of Furious 7 has been legally stopped in Thailand, according to the Bangkokpost.
The Civil Court has prohibited the screening of the American action film, called Fast and Furious 7 internationally, which was due to open on April 1, pending settlement of a breach of contract dispute between Sahamongkol Film and the movie’s star, Thai martial artist Panom Yeerum, better known as Tony Jaa. The action was brought by Somsak “Sia Jiang” Techaratanaprasert, the founder of Sahamongkol Film International.
Here is what Tony Jaa told ManlyMovie recently over this dispute;
In 2013 I ended my relationship with the Thai Studio that I had previously worked with. During the period of my attachment to that studio I was unable to perform in any films not produced by them. This restricted the range and number of films that you have seen me perform in.
Either way, this movie will be a huge boost for the career of Tony Jaa.
