Statham goes Rogue!

Whopper Award winner Jason Statham is teaming up with Whopper Award nominee Jet Li in upcoming Rogue. The actors who were up for the same Whopper Award category are set to square off mano y mano in the new thriller.

Statham recently joined the cast of Rogue, which is set to start production in March and shooting on location in Vancouver. Renowned rap video director Philip Atwell will direct his feature debut. Also of interesting note is that Cory Yuen, who directed Statham in The Transporter, will serve as choreographer and director of the action scenes.

Statham will star as Police Officer Jack Crawford in Rogue. After his partner Tom Lone and his family are killed by assassins for the ruthless Chang crime family, Crawford embarks on an obsessive mission to find their killer, known only as Rogue. Jet Li will portray the mysterious killer.

Ah you mean Sven Law? Of course we remember him, but I'm sure that in Rogue he'll be playing an Asian.

I wonder if Vaughan will be acting out anything else he saw in Event Horizon?
Trying to butterfly people to the sickbay ceiling, etc

The One kicked ass. Double Li's was much better than double VanDammes!

Lt. Colonel Creedon said...

Ah yes, the wonderful Double Impact. "Double the VanDamme - Double the VanDammage"
