Wong Kar Wai’s The Grand Masters
In the past few years we have seen the legend “Ip Man” brought back to life by kung fu legend Donnie Yen in “Ip Man 1-2″ and also in “The Legend Is Born — Ip Man”. Now step up Wong Kar Wai in the directors seat, as he brings to life another version with Tony Leung Chiu Wai in the lead role.
Also starring in the movie are Zhang Ziyi (Crouching Tiger, Hero), Cung Le (Bodyguards and Assassins, Dragon Eyes) and Chen Chang (Red Cliff 1-2).
Action choreographer for the movie is Yuen Woo Ping and with all his experience i think he will do a great job. Producing the movie is veteran Ng See Yuen, who did movies with Yuen Woo Ping since the days of “Drunken Master” and “Snake In The Eagles Shadow”. I have to say the director looks like he has got this movie spot on, great action shots in the rain, with slow motion kicks going past the face of Tony Leung by a whisker.
