Wilson YipWilson Yip or Yip Wai-Shun (Chinese: 葉偉信; born 1963) is a Hong Kong actor, filmmaker and screenwriter. His films include Bio Zombie, The White Dragon, SPL: Sha Po Lang, Dragon Tiger Gate, Flash Point and Ip Man trilogy. In 2005, Yip directed his most critically acclaimed film, SPL: Sha Po Lang. A gritty return to the 1980s style of Hong Kong action cinema, SPL starred Simon Yam and Donnie Yen as Hong Kong police officers trying to pin a crime on an unstoppable gangster, portrayed by Sammo Hung. In 2006, Yip re-teamed with Yen for an adaptation of a Hong Kong manga, Dragon Tiger Gate. In 2007 Yip released Flash Point, another martial-arts crime drama in the same vein as SPL. The film starred Donnie Yen, Louis Koo, and Collin Chou. Yen and Yip’s latest collaboration as actor and director, Ip Man, is a semi-biographical account of Yip Man, the first martial arts master (Chinese: Sifu) to teach the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun openly. It also featured fight choreography by Sammo Hung. The film was released in December 2008 and immediately shot to number one on its opening week in Hong Kong, earning over HK.8 million in three weeks. Ip Man 2, which is produced by Raymond Wong, picks up on Yip Man’s life after his migration to Hong Kong where he took on his most famous disciple, Bruce Lee. The film was released 29 April 2010. In 2014, it was announced that Yip and Yen would reunite for a third Ip Man film, to start filming in early 2015 for release later in the year. The film will be presented in theatres in 3D format for the first time in the franchise.
