TWC Snatches Up Wong Kar Wai's 'The Grandmasters'

on February 07, 2013

Deadline's Mike Fleming reports that Wong Kar Wai's The Grandmasters has landed in the nurturing hands of The Weinstein Company. TWC has acquired all rights in the US and English-speaking Canadian territories from Annapurna Pictures, and rights to Australia, New Zealand and the UK from Wild Bunch. 

The Grandmaster's box office total in China is a solid $45.3 million, but the film's run has been overshadowed by the recent release of two Hollywood heavyweights: Skyfall and Cloud Atlas.

Wong Kar Wai's last feature-length film to open in North America was 2007's My Blueberry Nights, a drama that featured performances by Jude Law, Natalie Portman, Rachel Weisz and Norah Jones. My Blueberry Nights tallied only $867,142 stateside.
