‘Rambo,’ ‘Gangster’ Thai’d to shoots

Pix expected to inject millions to local service providers

BANGKOK — Sylvester Stallone starrer “Rambo IV” and Denzel Washington’s “American Gangster” will shoot in Thailand between November and January, the Thai Ministry of Tourism and Sports announced.

Washington will arrive Nov. 8 in Chiang Mai to shoot a scene in “American Gangster,” directed by Ridley Scott and co-starring Russell Crowe. Pic is about a heroin smuggler who hides his goods in the coffins of American soldiers returning from Vietnam. Shooting will take place over six days, according to the local production service company.

Principal photography of “Rambo IV: In the Serpent’s Eyes” will commence in January in Bangkok, Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai. Stallone returns to play a Vietnam War veteran who’s coaxed out of retirement in Thailand for a rescue mission in Burma. Shooting is expected to last at least two months.

Pre-production has already begun for both projects, an officer at the Thai Film Office said.

“Rambo IV” expects to spend around 200 million baht ($5.5 million) in Thailand. “American Gangster” is likely to inject $1.6 million to local service providers.
