Director Wong Kar-wai turned 54 on the 17th July. He is currently working on the December release of The Grandmasters (Yut Doi Jung Si) and had to celebrate on the set. Zhang Ziyi posted the birthday celebration photo from the set.
The Grandmasters is a film that Wong Kar-wai has prepared 13 years for and took almost 3 years to shoot on and off. Viewers who were anxious to see Tony Leung Chiu-wai were worried that the film would never be released and joked that it was “missing for a generation”. In March the film announced its mid December release, but the film is still in “a hurry to wrap up” production.
