Wong Kar Wai, renowned director of "In the Mood for Love," has been shooting his new project "The Grandmasters" for the past three years. During this time, only several promotional posters and one promotional trailer were released, leaving everybody clueless as to when the film will be screened.

However, the production company behind another series of films which also center on the kung-fu master Ip Man, is set to shoot its third installment at the end of this year, four years after the first movie within the series hit the silver screen, reports.

The new project, which focuses on the master-disciple relationship between Ip Man and kung-fu megastar Bruce Lee, will be filmed in 3D format.

The sequel will see the original cast and crew reunited, with Donnie Yen once again portraying Ip Man, as he did in the previous two films.

According to the producer Wong Bak-Ming, director Wilson Yip is set to decide who will take on the role of a young Bruce Lee.
