    Universal Studios Home Entertainment announces that The Scorpion King 3, now shooting in Thailand, will be released on DVD in early 2012.

    Picking up where The Scorpion King 2: Rise of a Warrior left off, The Scorpion King 3 continues the story of Mathayus, now the deposed leader of an ancient desert empire, as he faces the most terrifying challenge of his life. The film, which began shooting on October 29 in and around Bangkok, introduces an all new cast featuring Victor Webster (Melrose Place, Surrogates) as Mathayus; Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy, Hellboy 1 and 2) as Horus, the powerful King of Egypt; Billy Zane (Samantha Who?, Titanic) as the conniving King Talus; UFC star Kimbo Slice as Zulu Kondo; Bostin Christopher as Mathayus' comrade-in-arms Olaf (Unbreakable); WWE champion Dave Bautista as Agromael; Selina Lo (28 Weeks Later) as Tsukai; Krystal Vee (Streetfighter: The Legend of Chin-Li) as the beautiful princess Silda and Temuera Morrison (Star Wars: Episode III-Revenge of the Sith) as the ill-fated King Ramusan.

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

    The Scorpion King 3 is directed by Roel Reine (Death Race 2). Leslie Belzberg (Crazy Heart) is the producer along with executive producers Stephen Sommers, Sean Daniel, Jim Jacks and Kevin Misher. The film's production team includes director of photography Roel Reine, production designers Kuladee 'Gai' Suchatanun and Patrix 'Pae' Meesaiyaat and editors Radu Ion and Matthew Friedman.

    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.

    Wait, you mean there was already a Scorpion King II? I never heard about it.

    Anyway, I loved the figs from the first movie and would definitely be interested in more from this movie too (hint, hint -- 7" figs only though)

    LOL, I'm with you! When I posted this I was thinking to myself "They made a Scorpion King 2?" Not a huge fan of the series, but this one sounds like good fun, especially for a rental.

    The Scorpion King 2 is pretty lame to be fair. number 1 is great tho!. number 3 should at least have great action. shooting in thailand with Dean Alexandrou doing action on it. and the bad girl Selina Lo is super hot.
