Why not. I enjoyed the first 2. Well the second one not so much. But bring on some more Donnie Yen. Not sure we need it in 3D however.

Donnie Yen to return as Ip Man in 3D "Ip Man 3"
Posted: 09 April 2012 1607 hrs

HONG KONG: "Ip Man 3" script writer Edmond Wong revealed last week that Hong Kong action star Donnie Yen will return as martial arts master Ip Man in "Ip Man 3", which will feature 3D visual effects, reported Hong Kong media.

This has been confirmed by Yen's publicist, who said that Yen "is looking forward" to working on a 3D "Ip Man" film, and had entered into preliminary discussions with the film's producer Raymond Wong, though he "had not yet seen the script".

Edmond Wong further revealed that "Ip Man 3" will see Ip Man's famous student, martial arts legend Bruce Lee, play a big part in the story, though Ip Man will remain the film's central character.

"What is certain is that the film will begin with Bruce Lee becoming Ip Man's disciple. As for who will play Bruce Lee, we will have to do a large-scale casting exercise.

"Stars like Aarif Lee and Danny Chan are suitable and have played Bruce Lee before, but we are looking for a 16-17 year-old Bruce Lee. They may be a little too old. It is all up to Wilson Ip (the film's director) to decide," said Wong.

"Ip Man 3" producer Raymond Wong, added that the film will have a much bigger budget than "Ip Man" and "Ip Man 2", as it will feature fight scenes enhanced with 3D effects.

"Ip Man 3" will be the third film in the "Ip Man" series of martial arts films, which have done exceptionally well in the box office and had sparked a renewed interest in Wing Chun, a form of martial arts practised by Ip Man.

The film is scheduled to go into production at the end of the year.

So much for Donnie Yen saying he would never play Ip Man in another film ever again. :shrug:

I know. I'm shocked he's coming back given how taxing he said the role was for him (he was always in character even when the camera's weren't rolling and totally changed his diet to one meal a day to match that of Ip Man).

I hope after this, Wilson Yip and Donnie Yen team up for another film in the style of SPL or Flash Point. That or Donnie Yen and Tsui Hark can team up for a sequel to Seven Swords.

Money talks!!! I caught the first two films on Netflix and enjoyed both quite a bit, especially the first one.

Repeat the phrase "Kung fu in 3D" and count how long it takes for you to dislike the idea. (If you have a soul, it's never!)

Wasn't there already a 3D Kung Fu movie? I think directed by Yuen Woo Ping?

ditto. Not really excited for this but...ok. Would totally dig a SPL or Flashpoint style movie. Love Yen in those..they just need to tone down some things at times (Sammo flip and guy flying in the air during the end)

I wouldn't be surprised if this actually came out before Kar Wai Wong's The Grandmaster. Whatever happened to that flick?

Wong Kar-Wai's 'The Grandmaster' Reportedly Won't Be Ready For Release Until At Least December 2012
(http://blogs.indiewire.com/theplaylist/wong-kar-wais-the-grandmaster-reportedly-wont-be-ready-for-release-until-at-least-december-2012)

...and the wait continues. Wong Kar-Wai's "The Grandmaster" continues to build with all the mystery and delays of a Terrence Malick-worthy production. Not much has been seen of the film save for a few stills and a recently released teaser trailer (that is almost identical to one we saw last year). And as we figured, any chances of the movie showing up at Cannes are a pipe dream.

In December, Yu Dong, CEO of Chinese film distributor Bona Film, told Film Business Asia that "The Grandmaster" -- at one time tentatively slated to hit theaters at the end of 2011 -- "will be released some time between next summer and Christmas 2012." But it looks like the tail end of that date has become the best case scenario. Bona Film recently released their 2011 data and results to investors, and as they laid out their projections for earnings in 2012, business site Benziga notes that there has been a "reshuffle" of release dates for their top tier films: " 'The Grandmaster' from Wong Kar-Wai and 'Once Upon a Time in Shanghai' starring Chow Yun-fat were pushed back to Dec '12, with some originally planned titles to be delayed into 2013."

It should be noted that the film is currently without a U.S. distributor, with Annapurna Pictures holding the rights but having yet to strike a deal for someone to partner with them to get the movie into theaters. So at this point, you can pretty much take "The Grandmaster" out of your plans for 2012, barring some kind of festival appearance this fall (at the earliest). But even then, that would be contingent on WKW having his film completely finished months ahead of the movie's Chinese release date, which seems fairly unlikely given his tendency to keep fine tuning until the last moment. Also, pretty much every WKW film to date has opened overseas before landing in the United States, so it's likely we're not seeing this until 2013.
