Playing Ip Man seems to be the “in” thing to do, and there will be one more person playing the iconic role. Anthony Wong recently began training in order properly portray the master in Ip Man–Final Battle. Wong will play an older Ip, showing a different side that what has typically been shown of the person while Herman Yau directs. Yes, the director for the Legend is Born is directing this film as well.
Wong began his training almost half a year ago, and filming will begin shortly. I’ll be the first to say I’m not that hyped for another Ip Man film, but maybe Anthony Wong will be able to deliver a character that nobody else will. He is a talented actor and he may find something to make is version of Ip stand out.
