Martial arts and action-fans, get excited; we’ve got the first three pics from the Jason StathamJet Li pic, "Rogue" — and stay tuned for RT’s set report from the Vancouver production!

Perhaps you’ve had the thought; what if "The Transporter" met "Once Upon a Time in China" hero Wong Fei Hung? Who, in this epic battle of manic butt-kicker vs. deadly, trained master, would come out on top?

The answer may be a no-brainer to some, but a Statham-Li showdown does sound infinitely entertaining, and it’s coming to theaters next year in the form of Lionsgate’s "Rogue." In it, Statham plays an FBI agent on the hunt for revenge against Jet Li’s lethal assassin; Devon Aoki, Luis Guzman, and Japanese actor Ryo Ishibashi are also onboard for some intrigue and action.
