Tony Jaa vs. Donnie Yen?

Hong Kong producer and former Mandarin Films chief Raymond Wong, who in July set up his new shingle Pegasus Films with Mainland China investors, is looking to produce an action film by Ringo Lam and has invited Donnie Yen and Tony Jaa to star and "have a series of fights".

That's according to

Raymond Wong hopes to unite the two international screen giants despite the high fee of US$3m (HK$23.4m) commanded by Tony Jaa, "I'll talk about the new firm at a later date. It'd be great to have to the two appear in the same film, but I'll only talk about it when things are finalised."

This could be the martial-arts dream team-up fans have been waiting for. It would be a great project for Donnie Yen as he nears his planned 2013 retirement, and it would be a chance for Tony Jaa to prove himself in a head-to-head with the Hong Kong boys.

But will it happen? I think the chances are pretty slim, but it's fun to think about anyway.
