Twitch: RogerMore, looks like you were on the money...[JETLI] is out of [XPND2], which explains why they are courting DYEN   Paul2k on Aug 22, 19:35

they also hint that DYEN seems unlikely. I doubt he would do it, but give Tony Jaa the part, and a chance to showcase, and he could take off   Moviesnob on Aug 22, 19:39

the hook of Expendables is using known action stars though {nm}   moles on Aug 22, 19:42

I think Yen and Jaa are on equal footing...dont know about Asia, but in English Speaking territories, their product sells about the same {nm}   Moviesnob on Aug 22, 19:47

I know of Jaa...never even heard of Yen until right now, if that means anything... {nm}   Apokalips on Aug 22, 20:05

I will know who Yen is after The Weinstein Company release "Wu Xia" {nm}   Peterlee on Aug 22, 20:34

Correction: You will know who Yen is after The Weinstein Company release "Wu Xia" {nm}   Peterlee on Aug 22, 20:36

If someone doesn't know Yen from Shanghai Knights or HERO, doubtful that person will seek out a small limited release. {nm}   Antibody on Aug 22, 20:40

watch IP Man and IP Man 2 {nm}   Moviesnob on Aug 22, 20:51

and Once Upon a Time in China 2 {nm}   RogerMore on Aug 23, 06:35

Youtube has many of his fight scens   Antibody on Aug 23, 09:07

Ken Jeong!   moles on Aug 22, 20:07

Tony Jaa is very difficult to work with (ie. the trouble of "Ong bak 2 ") {nm}   Peterlee on Aug 22, 20:32

yup {nm}   Moviesnob on Aug 22, 20:51

JCHAN is the right age group and friend of Stallone, but probably sets the wrong tone. {nm}   Antibody on Aug 22, 20:52

maybe...but he has another side to him though...like in Karate Kid {nm}   tealfan on Aug 22, 21:47

He's still very particular about the kinds of projects he chooses to do, though, and it's highly doubtful he'd skew so violent and adult. {nm}   Paul2k on Aug 22, 21:57

But DYEN market value is bigger than JCHAN in Asian market now. {nm}   Lawrenxx on Aug 23, 01:16

This is if DYEN turns down the movie. {nm}   Antibody on Aug 23, 08:59

Chow Yun Fat anyone? {nm}   Apokalips on Aug 22, 20:57

he's not a martial artist (but faked well in crouching tiger). He is an action icon though, so should work {nm}   Moviesnob on Aug 22, 21:02

if they want to go true 80s old school, they should get Al Leong   moles on Aug 22, 22:17
