The TV series for Ip Man, helmed by director Fan Xiaotian, is rumoured to have casted Chinese actor Vincent Zhao as the show's male lead.

Addressing the press on Wednesday, Director Fan shared that conceptualization for the TV series started two years ago. He added that they have officially invited the 40-year-old Chinese actor to join the cast and there is a high chance that Vincent will take up the role offered.

The director let on that the series has yet to cast its female lead, adding that they might "choose a female idol star" for the role.
The movie version of Ip Man and its sequel featured Donnie Yen as the lead.

Previously, Donnie fell out with Vincent on the set of action movie Special Identity and several celebrities, including Shu Qi who was forced to shut down her microblog by Vincent's fans after voicing her support for Donnie.
