First Look at Wong Kar Wai’s Ip Man Film The Grand Master

Donnie Yen as Ip Man is pretty good stuff, even if they basically just copy and pasted the first film’s plot for the sequel. But hey, cash runs, right? Whaddaya gonna do. Anyways, the idea of Wong Kar Wai doing an Ip Man film, aka a martial arts movie is pretty wacky, notwithstanding the fact that he busted out with the martial arts flick “Ashes of Time” all those long, long many years ago. Then again, he’s Wong Kar Wai, and we’re not, so I’m dying to see this thing. Especially since the action choreography is provided by none other than Yuen Woo Ping.

The boys at Movielicious (via 24FPS) have some of the very first images from Kar Wai’s “The Grann Master” (or “The Grand Masters”, according to the images) making the rounds at the American Film Market.

The film starrs Tony Leung Chiu Wai as Ip Man and co-stars Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen, and Julian Cheung.

      It’s Wong Kar Wai. I’m pretty sure whatever he comes up with, it’ll be entirely different from the previous three films
