Pegasus Motion Pictures today will hold a press conference in Shanghai for IP MAN 3. Aside from Donnie Yen Chi Tan and Lynn Xiong returning to the cast, the film company even invited Hollywood action director Yuen Woo Ping to join the team. The Mainland media invitation also mentioned a mystery actor who will be the film's secret weapon. Reportedly that mystery actor will be the former world heavyweight boxing champion and one of the greatest heavyweight boxers in the world, Mike Tyson. The film will add a "Wing Chun" vs Boxing fight scene that would pit the "Strongest in the Universe" Yen Chi Tan against Tyson.
In addition, at the end of IP MAN 2 a childhood Bruce Lee appeared. In the IP MAN 3 Shanghai press conference invitation Bruce Lee's brother Robert Lee Chun Fai was listed as "film consultant". Conceivably "Bruce Lee" would have a great chance to "appear" in the film in some capacity.
Chi Tan yesterday posted online, "I am preparing to start a new journey, this may be the most important film of my life."
IP MAN 3 will also have several new face like Louis Cheung Kai Chung and Karena Ng Chin Yu. Patrick Tam Yiu Man will also play a part.
