"The Scorpion King 3" Shoots In Thailand

"The Scorpion King 3", continues shooting in Thailand, slated for release on DVD early 2012, for the Universal Studios Home Entertainment "DVD Originals" series.

The feature started lensing October 29 in and around Bangkok, introducing a new cast including Victor Webster as 'Mathayus', Ron Perlman as 'Horus', Billy Zane as 'King Talus', UFC star Kimbo Slice as 'Zulu Kondo', Bostin Christopher as 'Olaf', WWE champion Dave Bautista as 'Agromael', Selina Lo as 'Tsukai', Krystal Vee as 'Princess Silda' and Temuera Morrison as 'King Ramusan'.

"...As 'The Scorpion King 3' begins, 'Mathayus' has lost his beloved queen and been driven from his former kingdom by a virulent plague. Now, an assassin for hire, Mathayus is dispatched by 'Horus', the King of Egypt, to protect his ally 'King Ramusan' from imminent attack. In return for his services, he is promised Ramusan's daughter 'Silda' in marriage, as well as the legendary 'Eye of the Gods' medallion, which imparts supernatural powers to its wearer. But to collect the reward, he will have to first rescue the princess, who is being held captive by 'Talus', the scheming brother of Horus. Mathayus agrees to the perilous mission, but the evil that lies in wait for him will challenge even his cunning and strength in a staggering test of courage unlike any he has faced before..."

"'The Scorpion King 3' raises the bar for 'DVD Originals', " said Glenn Ross, Executive Vice President, General Manager of Universal Home Entertainment Productions, "encompassing the most stunning action, visual effects and production values to date, including a cast of over 400 warriors and elephants."
