Donnie Yen Says He Has Plenty More Movies In Him

donnieyenDonnie Yen, star of upcoming actioner sequel Ip Man 3 (alongside Iron Mike Tyson) is more than a recognisable face in the Asian film scene, as well as internationally.  Just how busy Yen has been intending to keep has been up in the air of late, but he says he’s not going to slow down.

Yen spoke with the South China Morning Post with a recent article published on Monday.
“I still have a lot of fire in me to make contemporary action movies,” Yen states. “They’re different from kung fu movies because the fights are not as protracted. But it’s still a form of expression for martial arts. I really want to keep going in this regard. I still have a lot of ideas on the creative side.”
Hopefully Yen will appear in more ‘western’ movies, but without taking away from his roots.  Ip Man 3 is released on January 26 and has been directed by Wilson Yip.

    Western directors can learn a lot from Donnie’s fight scenes, but the success of shaky, cut-up bullshit like the Taken sequels suggests they won’t. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8VfAWV_3dCU

    One of the best modern action stars working today, bar none. Few guys are as legit as Donnie Yen. Kung Fu Killer was one of the best action films of the year. I hope he stays in China and continues doing what he does best, here in the west he would be wasted like Chow-Yun Fat was.
