Donnie Yen turn on the screen IP Man 3, a return to the role that made him an icon, as Ip Man, the true grandmaster of Wing Chun who mentored Bruce Lee. In this explosive third installment of the hit martial arts series, when a gang of brutal gangsters led by a shady real estate developer (mike tyson) make a play to take over the city, Master Ip is forced to take a stand. Fists will be flying as some of the most incredible fight scenes ever filmed unfold on the big screen in this future genre classic.
Today we have 6 new character posters. Each features a cast member and the character they play. Sure, Donnie Yen takes center stage as Ip Man. But perhaps the most exciting features of a Leaf mike tyson as American fighter Frank. We also get to see Patrick Tam as Ma King-Sang, Lynn Hung Xiong as Cheung Wing-Sing, Jin Zhang as Sum Nung, and Danny Chan as young Bruce Lee.
The producers originally planned to use a CGI version of late martial arts legend Bruce Lee, which certainly caused some controversy. Just a week later, it was reported that Bruce Lee’s estate was trying to stop the production from going that route. Although we never got an update on the lawsuit filed by Bruce Lee’s family, the film IMDB Kwok-Kwan Chan (Kung Fu Hustle, Shaolin Soccer) portrays Bruce Lee, which is confirmed by his own character poster.
2010’s Ip Man and 2011’s Ip Man 2 are both based on the true story of Ip Man (Donnie Yen), the martial arts master who created the style known as Wing Chun, whose most famous student was Bruce Lee. The first two films did not feature Bruce Lee as a character, focusing on Ip Man’s early years in China. The producers initially wanted a CGI version of Bruce Lee because they couldn’t find an actor they thought was right to portray him, but that apparently changed when they found Kwok-Kwan Chan.
The real Ip Man lived from 1893 to 1972, but it’s unclear when IP Man 3 is exactly set, or how Bruce Lee will be presented in this sequel. Our previous report from March revealed that Mike Tyson plays the important role of a moonlighting real estate developer as a vicious street fighter. Along with the posters, you can take a second look at the action-packed trailer that debuted last month.
