Martin Scorsese will lend his name to The Weinstein Company's upcoming release of Wong Kar Wai's long-gestating epic "The Grandmaster".
The film will go by the moniker "Martin Scorsese Presents The Grandmaster" for its U.S. release which begins with a limited roll out on August 23rd in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto before a nationwide release on August 30th.
Speaking of great filmmakers, it has also been confirmed today that Spike Jonze's much anticipated "Her" starring Joaquin Phoenix has been pushed back.
Originally slated for November 20th, the film is now targeting a December 18th limited and January 10th wide release to help give it a more high-profile awards push.
