Donnie Yen announced on social media that Ip Man 4 has completed filming its scenes in China.
Currently busy with the post-production work for his films, Big Brother and Enter the Fat Dragon, Donnie could not celebrate with the Ip Man 4 cast and crew.
Director Wilson Yip (Ip Man Trilogy) and action choreographer Yuen Wo Ping (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Kung Fu Hustle, Kill Bill: Vol. 2) return to helm Ip Man 4.
New cast members include British actor, Scott Adkins (Doctor Strange, The Bourne Ultimatum, The Expendables 2), and Taiwanese actor, Vanness Wu, and a special appearance featuring Jackie Chan.
The story for the new film follows Ip Man’s disciple, Bruce Lee, arriving in the United States to open his own martial arts school. Bruce offends the local people and Ip Man appears in Chinatown to help Bruce establish a stronger foot in Chinatown and win over his adversaries.
Showcasing the power and spirit of Wing Chun, Ip Man earns the respect of the locals. The film will also depict how kung fu grows its roots in the United States.
Donnie Yen vs Jackie Chan
Chan will play the Big Brother in Chinatown and he and Yen will have a fight sequence in the film that will be the highlight of the movie.
Yen and Chan have shared the screen together a few times in Shanghai Knights (2003) and The Twins Effect 2 (a.k.a. Blade Of Kings) (2004).
Ip Man 4 is expected to arrive in theaters late this year or next year.
