KUALA LUMPUR: Fans of martial arts movies will most certainly wait with bated breath for the opening of Ip Man 4 later this year to catch the legendary actor Jackie Chan in action.
An entertainment portal reported that Chan will play a cameo role alongside actor Donnie Yen who returns in the titular role of Ip Man, the grandmaster of the martial art Wing Chun and teacher of another legend, Bruce Lee.
The portal also reported that a fight scene between the two actors would be the highlight of Ip Man 4.
Chan will play “a respected Big Brother in Chinatown”, but his cameo will only be a special appearance. There is no further details on how the scene will unfold.
Last year, Yen confirmed that there was going to be an Ip Man 4 film and shared the first look of the film last April.
Directed by Wilson Yip, Ip Man 4 will follow Bruce Lee’s first touchdown in the U.S., chronicling his attempt to open a martial arts school there and his challenges in dealing with the locals.
Ip Man will then come to Lee’s rescue as he will help him earn the trust of the people. Not only that, he will also help lay the foundations of kung fu in the US.
This highly-anticipated martial arts movie’s cast also include Scott Akins and Vanness Wu, who are newcomers to the epic film saga.
