Thailand - Hollywood star Steven Seagal pays respect to late King Bhumibol

.
Hollywood martial artist and director Steven Seagal met with PM Prayuth Chan-ocha and paid respect to the portrait of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej at Government House his morning.
.
Seagal, who is planning to shoot his next action movie "Attrition" in Thailand, expressed his condolences to Thailand for its loss and said he was moved by the late HM the King's hard work, according to Bangkok Post journalist Wassana Nanuam.
.
Seagal is best known for his actions movies, where he shows off a near-mastery of the Japanese martial art of Aikido, but he has also studied Muay Thai.
.
He noted that he has admired the work of the late king, who worked tirelessly to bring his citizens a better life. Seagal is a longtime practicing Buddhist.
.
Seagal said the movie “Attrition” was inspired by the U.S. government moving Thailand to Tier 3, the worst possible ranking for the trafficking of people in 2014. Therefore, Seagal said the lead character in his new film will hunt down a human trafficking ring with the Thai police.
.
Well, that's typical Seagal.
.
Thailand was moved to a Tier 2 ranking, which is slightly better, this past June.
.
Thai officials will facilitate Seagal in the filming of “Attrition,” which will reportedly take place in Chiang Mai, Bangkok and some of the Southern provinces.
.
Seagal is hoping to incorporate Muay Thai fighters into his movie, which will be released next year.
.
Seagal has shot several movies in Southeast Asia. In 2003, his action flick “Belly of the Beast” was shot in Thailand where Thai actress Sara Malakul Lane played his daughter.
