The crazy rich lifestyle of Keanu Reaves’ arch nemesis in John Wick 4 – Donnie Yen

A martial arts icon and one of the highest paid actors in Asia

John Wick 4 just dropped its first trailer

While Keanu Reeves will make his return as the undefeatable hitman, Donnie Yen graced the screen with his powerful fighting skills 

Today he is considered one of Asia’s highest-paid actors, standing strong alongside fellow action stars Michelle Yeoh, Jet Li and Jackie Chan.

Although his fortune is a far cry from Jackie Chan’s US$400 million and Jet Li’s US$250 million, Yen’s career is predominantly focused on film rather than outside ventures.

Some of his films - the Ip Man franchise, Crouching Tiger, Shanghai Knights, Raging Fire, Xxx: Return of Xander Cage, Star Wars’ Rogue One and John Wick 4.

Yen's revenue streams: Films

He launched his own stylish high-end sunglasses brand called DonniEye in 2018. Prices start from US$180 and go up to US$1,525, according to its website.
