BERLIN (AP) — Chinese director Wong Kar-wai's martial arts epic "The Grandmaster" will have its international premiere at next year's Berlin Film Festival.
Organizers say the film, starring Tony Leung, Ziyi Zhang and Chang Chen in a 1930s-set drama about the life of legendary martial arts expert Yip Man, will open the festival, which runs Feb. 7-17.
Shanghai-born Wong, whose previous films including "As Tears Go By," ''Chungking Express," ''Happy Together" and "In the Mood for Love," will also lead the jury at the 63rd edition of the festival.
Other films to have their international premiere in Berlin are Ulrich Seidl's sex tourism story "Paradise: Hope" and Gus Van Sant's film "Promised Land" about the shale gas industry, starring Matt Damon.
