Here is our first look at Mike Tyson in upcoming beat ’em up movie Ip Man 3. Tyson is on board the upcoming sequel for a ‘significant role’ that could likely lead to an ‘explosive’ fight between Tyson and Donnie Yen that will pit the discipline of boxing against kung-fu. Tthe film will also be graced by one of the real life Ip Man’s former students in the late, great Bruce Lee… by way of onscreen digital magic that will reproduce the iconic martial artist’s image, allowing him to return in a way never before conceive.
Tyson’s involvement with the project began when the former boxer opened an account on a Chinese blog site called Weibo, and posted messages asking about the best fighters in China. Donnie Yen was suggested and soon enough, and those threads would grab the attention of Raymond Wong – who got in touch with Tyson and pitched the idea for Ip Man 3 pitting him in an epic onscreen battle of styles with Donnie Yen.
The film will be released in 3D in the first quarter of 2016.
