Needless to say, a new martial arts (!) film by Wong Kar-Wai is something to be excited about, but it seems like we’ve been waiting forever for his latest effort, “The Grandmasters.”
The film is a biopic on Bruce Lee‘s mentor, Yip Man, and production has been underway since last December with a cast consisting of Tony Leung Chiu-wai in the title role, Song Hye-kyo as his wife, with Zhang Ziyi, Zhao Benshan, Julian Cheun Chi-lam and Chang Chenand rounding out the cast. Filming is still underway and is scheduled to shoot at least for a week or two after Christmas—making it a tight squeeze if Wong is to make it in time for Cannes (but we have our fingers crossed).
At any rate, a teaser for the film has dropped, but don’t get too excited. It features no footage and just lots and lots of very dramatic text. Still, we’ll take what we can get at this point — check it out below. [/Film via Movielicious]
