In Ip Man 4 the Kung Fu master travels to San Francisco in the U.S. after his student, Bruce Lee, has upset the local martial arts community by opening a Wing Chun school. The film stars Donnie Yen as Ip Man, Kwok-Kwan Chan as Bruce Lee. Scott Adkins also stars in the film. Darren Leung plays Bruce Lee’s head student and Steven Dasz plays another of Bruce Lee’s students along with Brian O’Shea in the film.
Ip Man 4 will be released in July 2019.
On Friday, September 30, 2016, Donnie Yen posted on Facebook that he and Director Wilson Yip would once again be teaming up for IP Man 4 (2019).
We have a few new details about the film from Director Wilson Yip,
In Ip Man 4, I’m inclined to show how Ip Man views his relationship with Bruce Lee. [The story] won’t be just about Ip Man. How in reality did Chinese martial arts practitioners live after they went overseas in the 1960s and ’70s? [The film will explore this] through Lee and his martial arts school the Jun Fan Gung Fu Institute, and his relationship with Ip.
We know that Mathieu Jaquet, Bleeding Steel (2017), is also set to be in the film and Wilson Yip said that, if scheduling allows, he would like to have Danny Kwok-Kwan Chan to reprise his role as Bruce Lee from Ip Man 3.
Woo-Ping Yuen, the director of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny (2016) is the action director for Ip Man 4 so we know the action will be some of the best.
