After a first attempt to portray Ip's life on screen resulted in the project being abandoned, producer Raymond Wong developed his own film with full consent from Ip's sons, and had filmmakers head to Foshan, to research Master Ip's life. Ip Chun, Ip Man's eldest son, served as a consultant for the film. Principal photography for Ip Man began in March 2008 and ended in August; filming took place in Shanghai, which was used to architecturally recreate Foshan. Ip Man was released in Hong Kong on 18 December 2008, [1] receiving widespread acclaim from both critics and audiences. Following its success, Ip Man was nominated for 12 Hong Kong Film Awards, winning awards for Best Picture and Best Action Choreography. A sequel to the film is currently in development, slated for a 2010 theatrical release.
