When he was making the rounds for IP MAN 2, Donnie Yen said that he would not be returning to the role. There wasn’t a story to really push through. Seems like time (and probably a little cash) are in the process of changing his mind. CNN’s Talk Asia sat down with lightning fast badass and got the scoop. You can read the full transcript here:
KRISTIE LU STOUT: Your fans want to know, will there be an “Ip Man 3”?
DONNIE YEN: I don’t want to say no, because I think the audience wants to do it. Actually, deep inside, I want to do it. But not now. You know, I want to concentrate on exploring other characters.
You know, last year, I did four movies, all ranges of different roles, from General natural (ph) to Mu Sha (ph), you know, playing a hit man. I did “Monkey King,” playing the monkey. And I did a comedy with no action at all, “The Makeup Artist.”
I want to try other roles and see how far I can stretch that roles. Then after maybe — after that, “Ip Man 3.”
