Donnie Yen Retiring in 2013

Donnie Yen is currently 46 years old and after years upon years after delivering movie goers the sheer excitement of watching him perform on screen, his body can't take any more abuse. Years of martial arts on screen and injuries have lead Yen to retire from acting by the time he hits 50.

That isn't to say, however, that he is going to retire from the film industry entirely. Yen has set plans to work in the production of movie, whether that be as a director or even fight choreographer (much like Sammo Hung these days)

One can only wonder what this could possibly mean for the future of martial arts movies in China from now on.

Who could possibly fill in the shoes of Donnie Yen after he retires?


  1. Hmm. I don't know who he is haha.
    I'm guessing he's some sort of Jackie Chan or Jet Li kinda actor?

    Also, he has no wrinkles. That's pretty good for a guy who's almost 50 haha.

  2. is that the Ip man guy?
    ip man was a really good movie.

  3. I really like him a lot from 14 Blades. Great production. Pretty good story.
