In an interview with Strikeforce’s website MMA fighter-turned-actor Cung Le said that he would be returning to film ‘The Grandmasters‘ in April:
Basically, I was in China in early October for a Wong Kar Wai movie called â€œThe Grandmastersâ€ for two weeks…On December 23rd, I wrapped â€œDragon Eyesâ€ and came home for Christmas, and then left on the 26th for China for another movie, â€œThe Man with the Iron Fistâ€ for nine weeks of filming. At the same time, â€œGrandmastersâ€ was filming out there, so I worked a week on that film. It ended up with them wanting to expand my role, so now Iâ€™ve got to go back out to China at the end of April to do some more shooting. Iâ€™m getting to work with some big names. Wong Kar Wai is a big-time director out there, and Tony Leung, whoâ€™s like the Brad Pitt of China.
On his Twitter account, he noted that he would be “Back to China sometime in April. I have a week of filming on The Grandmasters (2012)” and that “Wong Kar Wai expanded my part on Grandmasters.”
