Donnie Yen Announces FLASH POINT Sequel In Development
With this, it was Donnie Yen's signature film at the time for a new era of martial arts cinema with the 2008 cop thriller, Flash Point, following suit. The film portrayed Yen as a tough Hong Kong Cop in pursuit of a nefarious Vietnamese gang led by actor and martial arts star Collin Chou, and ultimately continued the foreground in what perpetually became one of the single, most memorable fight sequences in the history of the genre.
After this, Yen would essentially retire his UFC-stylized techniques for more formal action attire in a stunning trilogy of Ip Man films, here and now with the third making way for a U.S. release with Ip Man 3 courtesy of Well Go USA. Notably, it's worth mentioning that the past several years have seen Yen attached to numerous films and projects that have currently remained low key or null with no updates to provide whatsoever; even moreso, the second part of Yen's Iceman tete-a-tete remains in post-production/release limbo after wrapping two years ago.
Thus, we've been left wondering what will be next for Yen after Ip Man 3. The actor did clarify last month that he still had a little bit of fire left in him whilst primarily staving off of kung fu movies, and that little details leaves plenty to be excited for. Well, leave it to this week's promotional events in Los Angeles where it just so happens MAAC confirmed in a brief statement that Yen would be producing a sequel to Flash Point. There aren't any casting details yet as this is just breaking news, but what do you guys think?
Is Yen hinting at a return to MMA? Could he possibly star? Who do you want to see in the cast? Comment below and sound off!
