Well if Tony Jaa got in touch with his spiritual side in-between Ong Bak 2 and Ong Bak 3, it shows. Ong Bak 3 is very much about salvation through faith, plus a bunch of violent ass-kicking and people dying horribly (at one point a king gets decapitated and you get to watch his head blink and twitch for a couple extra seconds). It's sort of like the Passion of the Christ of Buddhism, if such a thing can be said to exist. I did like it though. It's a direct continuation of Ong Bak 2, but a lot better. And the direction was surprisingly good. So, hats off to Tony Jaa. He went out on a high note.

It had nothing to do with that.

Jaa didn't want to work wtih the Studio, The Studio contractually forced him to make more movies so he ran and hid in a temple and won't come out until the contracts up.

They won't touch him in a temple.

At the rate Terrence Malick makes movies, I would believe that he had run off and joined a monastery. Although I think he's currently working on 4 projects or something.

Don't forget that Stanley Kubrick often had a lot of projects in the pipeline at once, too, and one movie would emerge every decade or so. For one reason or another, a lot of projects don't get completed.
