HONG KONG, March 21 — Donnie Yen has confirmed that Ip Man 4 will begin filming in 2018.
The Hong Kong action star shared the news via his official Facebook page, writing: “Some prefer to call me the I P MAN. Filming begins 2018, I am back!”
Yen’s post was accompanied by the teaser poster below.
No official release date has been set.
Last September, Yen also used Facebook to announce that he would be reprising his role as legendary Wing Chun grand master Ip Man.
Wilson Yip, who has directed all previous Ip Man movies, will also be returning, as will martial arts choreographer, Yuen Woo Ping.
Since the franchise’s debut in 2008, the Ip Man films have been massive hits worldwide.
Yen was most recently seen in XxX: Return of Xander Cage with Vin Diesel, and has two more releases lined up for 2017: King of Drug Dealers and Iceman 2. He also starred in last year’s smash-hit Star Wars spinoff, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
