Can anyone I-D the actor, who appear's  as Chen Zhen in this latest 2019 version of Fist of Fury(1972)?. This looks closer to Jet Li's  Fist of Legend, than the origianl film. Maybe its the attire of the hero?. Not thats a major problem. Thanks to CityonFire.Com, for hte heads up on this one.

 

To answer my own question, the actors is  Li Hao.

You forgotten Dragon Chen (real name is Chen Tien-Xing) 

He made some films. 

The first one, "Jeet Kune Do" (2010), is a really good Bruceploitation film. Chen plays the son of a kung fu master (Bruce Leong, The Dragon lives again). His father tried to teach him, since he was a child, the family style, called Chen Fist Style. But Chen is obsessed with Bruce Lee and Jeet Kune Do. He even imitates Lee. Chen travels to an city because he wants to participate on an upcoming "Jeet Kune Do" Tournament. Because of that, he gets in an argue with his father before and his father gets sick. In the city he meets people, who made him think about, if he always want to be shadow of Bruce Lee. He even meet an old student of Lee, who show him, the true meaning of Jeet Kune Do. The Tournament itself is Bruceploitation. One of Chen's opponents is a rich guy, who also immitates Bruce Lee. The other opponents are immitate Dan Inosanto, Ji Han Jae and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. It's crazy, but great entertainment. 

The next film he made, "Nunchucks", seems to be lost or was never released. There is only a trailer available on YouTube. 

Then he made the film "Kung Fu Fighter" which had little Bruce Lee in it. Chen plays a guy, who first is poor, than becomes a famous superstar, gets aroogant and forgets his longtime girlfriend. Later he looses everything and starts to understand, that fame isn't everything. During the hole film Bruce Lee is mentioned. "I want to be as famous as Bruce Lee" "You're the next Bruce Lee" and Chen has Bruce Lee posters at the wall of his apartment. 

In his fourth film "Ultimate Hero", Chen finally throws "the Bruce Lee thing" away and made a film in his own right.

Wasn't there a really poor quality bootleg of this going around?, where the image was heavily pixalated?.

I wonder if they got the Estate's consent to use BL image in this movie?. Just don't see it getting the same kind of attention, a certain Hollywood movie has done recently.

Probably not enough press attention, for it to be worth playing a victim narrative against.

I agree, his image is still heavily featured in low budget Asian cinema. Did the BL Estate ever comment on how he was portrayed in the Ip Man movies?.
