Donnie Yen, who has become Hong Kong’s hottest action icon as of late, has made a major announcement via his official Facebook page:
That’s exactly how you saw it. Yen is returning to his iconic role of Wing Chun Grandmaster Ip Man (Yip Man) in Ip Man 4, which will reunite him with director Wilson Yip, who handled directing duties for the previous three films.
Story details are unknown at this time yet it will be extremely interesting to see how Part 4 will play out in terms of the real Ip’s life. Perhaps we will see something to compare with Herman Yau‘s Ip Man: The Final Fight, in which Anthony Wong played the grandmaster. With this official confirmation, one can now wonder what this will involve.
Yen is currently at work on the 1970’s-set King of Drug Dealers alongside Andy Lau and Philip Ng. And look out for Yen on-screen alongside Vin Diesel in XxX: The Return of Xander Cage in January.
