UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., Dec. 2 (UPI) -- Principal photography has begun in Thailand on the action flick "The Scorpion King 3," Universal Studios Home Entertainment said Thursday.

The latest installment in the franchise stars Ron Perlman, Victor Webster and Billy Zane. It is slated for release 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 production company said in a synopsis.

"'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," added Glenn Ross, executive vice president and general manager of Universal Home Entertainment Productions. "The 'Scorpion King' saga, with its compelling characters, engaging storyline and non-stop action, is a perfect complement to Universal's hugely popular and successful DVD Originals offerings."
