    Default Matrix fight choreographer directs Thai action star Tony Jaa

    Up-and-coming Thai martial arts film actor Tony Jaa may star in a Hong Kong action film directed by Yuen Woo-ping, a fight choreographer for two of the Matrix films, a newspaper reported on Thursday. The unnamed HK$50 million film, will pit Jaa against Wu Jing, a martial arts actor trained by Jet Li's teacher, in a Thai kickboxing versus Chinese kung fu martial arts extravaganza, Apple Daily reported, citing a spokeswoman for Hong Kong artist management company Gold Label. "A fight between the two [Jaa and Wu] will be fresh for the audience," the report quoted the spokeswoman, identified only as Chan, as saying.


    Talks on the project, to be produced by Peter Chan Ho-sun, director of the 1999 US film The Love Letter, are still ongoing, the report said. The female star of the film could be Hong Kong pop singer Miriam Yeung, the report said. Jaa, who made his name in the Thai kickboxing film Ong-bak or Muay Thai Warrior and who is currently starring in Tom Yum Goong a box-office hit in his native Thailand has been given information on the project, Apple Daily said.


    Peter Chan speaks Thai and will handle negotiations with Jaa, the report said. It was not clear if any of the artists named in the report have committed to the project. Calls to a Gold Label spokeswoman went unanswered on Thursday.


    Yuen has directed and choreographed dozens of martial arts films over the past 30 years, but he received international recognition for his work on the groundbreaking The Matrix and its sequel, The Matrix: Reloaded.......................................... ......................

    Well, so many styles of Kung fu and Mauy thai is just a single art(right?).. Say Tai chi(Like the name says, it's the ultimate, imo) vs Mauy thai.. Internal will always beat external. And there is San shou which is China's retaliation to Mauy thai.. And thousands of other styles.

    Can't wait!

    Nonsense, I saw your other post saying that Kung fu was innefective, which was also nonsense, you need to do some research and stop being ignorant.

    Neither are better than either, they're both effective and have been around for thousands of years. Plus there are thousands of styes of Kung fu, I'd definetely pick KF over MT.

    Tai chi>All other MA's, imo.

    Your opinion is ignorant, I never said my opinion was more valid. .

    " how many kung fu practicioners in mma?"

    I don't care, what's your point?

    "kf is traditionalist bullshit"

    Yeah sure.. MA's that have been around for 1000's of years are just innefective, yeah right. What's effective stays what's not gets thrown away. What's around to day is effective, so STFU and go learn.

    " rofl at all the people who beleive real fights are like the magical ones in the movies"

    You think I see it like that? You probably didn't even know what MT was until you saw Ong bak, and think it's invincible cause of the movie.
