The final film in the Ip Man series, Ip Man 4: The Finale is scheduled to open at cinemas on Dec 20.
And in line with the release, the actor portraying the titular character – yes, Donnie Yen himself – is coming to Kuala Lumpur on Dec 11-12.
He will be here along with co-star Danny Chan, producer Raymond Wong and scriptwriter Edmond Wong.
Yen and company will meet fans at three locations: Centre Court, Suria KLCC, Kuala Lumpur, at 8pm on Dec 11; on Dec 12, Oval Concourse, LG, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya, at 7pm and Foyer, MBO The Starling Level 5, Petaling Jaya at 8.30pm.
In this final saga about the revered martial artist Ip Man, Yen's character is close to 60 years of age and is stricken with cancer.
Upon his student's invitation to go to the United States – FYI, the student is Bruce Lee – Ip Man ends up at San Francisco's Chinatown where he has to teach a lesson or two to a couple of impolite Westerners about the art that he practises.
