IP MAN 3: Are You Ready For Mike Tyson vs. Donnie Yen?
Production began on Ip Man 3 today. All the familiar players are in place. Raymond Wong will produce. Wilson Yip will direct. Donnie Yen will reprise his role as Yip Man. Then just to mix things up a bit, former heavy-weight champion Mike Tyson will join the production.
"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."
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.
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
Because of this news I just found out that Darren Shahlavi died last January. He's a pretty good fighter though. And...his death is not because of drug overdose just like the rumors and speculation, but more likely because of heart attack!

Update: Three months after the tragic death of martial artist Darren Shahlavi, on 14 January at the age of 42, his family have received the official coroner's report from the Los Angeles County Coroners Department, and would like it to be known that Darren died of natural causes, rather than of a drug overdose, as some news outlets wrongly stated at the time of his death."Darren died on January 14, 2015 of natural causes: a sudden and fatal heart attack. He was found to have Atherosclerosis (also known as arteriosclerotic vascular disease or Asvd) His left anterior descending artery was 95% blocked, which must have been worsening for several years.Darren had no drugs or medications in his body, and only 0.02% Bac (Blood Alcohol Concentration);...
People always relate movie stars with drugs. Natural death for movie star is not a good news for media!! ====
After it was announced that former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson would be joining the cast of Ip Man 3, Donnie Yen's wife publicly expressed her concerns that Donnie might get hurt by Tyson. But a few days ago, it was Yen who caused Tyson to be injured.
According to local reports, while filming one of the fight scenes, Yen's elbow accidentally came in contact with Tyson's left index finger, which was later confirmed to have been fractured. Tyson has earned praise from the cast and crew for the professionalism he displayed in completing the shoot.

Admin: hi guys! I'm adding a new section on the forum. Since so many of good ancient costume series appear in the market, like Nirvana in Fire, etc. A bit touch of wuxia, but not really wuxia. Some are historical fictions with a touch of wuxia,
