Looks like Wong Kar-Wai has something up his sleeve for everyone who has been patiently awaiting his next feature film "The Grandmasters." While it won't be making the Cannes Film Festival like many had hoped, with more shooting happening this month and a December release date in China lined up, it looks like we'll have a brief treat to hold us over until then.

Wong Kar-Wai

Looks like Wong Kar-Wai has something up his sleeve for everyone who has been patiently awaiting his next feature film "The Grandmasters." While it won't be making the Cannes Film Festival like many had hoped, with more shooting happening this month and a December release date in China lined up, it looks like we'll have a brief treat to hold us over until then.

Chivas Regal has announced that they will unveil "Dejavu," a new short film by the director starring Wong Kar-Wai regular Chang Chen ("Happy Together," "Eros," "2046," "The Grandmasters") and model/actress Du Juan. What's it about? Who knows, but the whiskey sponsored short is said to be a legendary love story, shot in Umaid Bhawan Palace of India. So yeah, this thing will probably look fucking opulent. As usual.

This isn't the first time the director has dipped his toes in the advertising world of sorts, having recently helmed a spot for Shu Uemura cosmetics, but few of those efforts are getting the splashy kind of unveiling this will be receiving. For those of you in town, "Dejavu" will screen in Chivas House on the Croisette on Friday 18th at 3pm. But we presume it will be online not too long after. And at this point, we'll take whatever Wong Kar-Wai we can get.
