IP MAN 3: Are You Ready For Mike Tyson vs. Donnie Yen?
If you saw Ip Man 2 you know that martial artist Darren Shahlavi (rest his soul) had a role of foreign devil who fought against Yip Man. In the third installment Tyson will play a property developer who is also a street fighting boxer."Two years ago Mike Tyson opened up a Weibo (the Chinese micro-blogging site) account and the first question he asked was, 'who is the best fighter in China?'" Pegasus chairman and Ip Man 3 producer Raymond Wong told THR. "Someone answered him 'Donnie Yen,' and that gave me an idea. For the third installment in the Ip Man series, we want to have an explosive fight, and Mike Tyson versus Donnie Yen fits the bill."
In the same report from THR there is news that Yip Man's most famous student, Bruce Lee, will finally make an appearance. Though it is a tad disappointing that the producers have decided to use CGI to portray the legendary figure there is slight comfort in knowing that they could not find anyone who could recreate Lee's intensity.
Just as there will only be one Yip man, there will always and ever be only one Bruce Lee.
