Lau Kar Leung an advisor on The Grand Master

Legendary director Lau Kar-leung, was given a Lifetime Achievement award at this year's Hong Kong Film Awards, long overdue in my opinion. Lau sifu is currently working with cult director Wong Kar-wai on his long-awaited kung fu film called "The Grand Master".
Although director Wong's Ip Man film was in development long before the Donnie Yen hit, both that movie and its sequel beat Wong Kar-wai into the cinema.
"The Grand Master", which stars Tony Leung  as Ip Man, will detail the challenge matches between the different kung fu styles in 1960s Hong Kong. Wong reveals that he is using different masters to choreograph the arts of the different school, with Lau Kar-leung providing guidance on the Hung Gar style used in the film. No time frame given yet as to when the film will be scheduled for release.
