BANGKOK: -- The Civil Court issued an injunction on Wednesday suspending the show of Hollywood’s action-packed movie “Fast and Furious 7” scheduled on April 1 pending the court’s trial of a breach of contract case between Saha Mongkol Film and one of the actors.


Saha Mongkol Film filed a lawsuit with the Civil Court against Panom Yeerum, alais Ja Panom, a Thai actor in the “Fast and Furious 7” film, as the first defendant, Universal International Pictures and UIP Thailand as the second and third defendants for breach of contract.

Saha Mongkol said that Ja Phanom was still in contract with the company but had worked for Universal Pictures in the shooting of “Fast and Furious 7” amounting to breach of contract.

The company has demanded 1.6 billion baht in compensation from the three defendants.

Well if they have a case it should be be between them and the actor. Kinda like suing a different car brand because some celebrity agreed to be seen in only in one of theirs but was seen in a competing brand. Not the ccompeting car company's fault imo.

1.6 billion does have a nice sound to it however...

If he has breached his contract then there has to be some sort of comeback on him.

Not sure banning the film is the way forward, but as the whole franchise is a pile of stinking horse dung, I can live with it.

Never heard of the actor though, is he that famous? Worldwide I mean.
