News out of  Cannes  is that Max Zhang ( Jin Zhang ) will once again be returning to our screens as  Cheung Tin Chi ( Ip Man 3 ) in a new Ip Man spin off  to be directed by the legendary Yuen Woo Ping.

Max Zhang has been all the rage of late with show stealing roles in recent blockbusters SPL 2 and IP Man 3  as well as Kar Wai Wong’s Grandmaster,

This really is fantastic news. You could argue that of all the active martial arts actors right now , Max’s screen and fight craft is second to only Donnie Yen (although some could argue that his showcase in Ip Man 3 was  superior to the legendary Donnie Yen )


We can’t wait to see him back on the big screen again!



If there is any doubt .. check out Max Zheng in the final fight during SPL 2  : Despite the wires this fight scene was fantastic

You can also catch him in Rise of the Legend
