The Weinstein Company have announced that Martin Scorsese will lend his name to present Wong Kar Wai’s The Grandmaster heading into awards season.

TWC releases the long-gestating kung fu chronicle on Aug 23 in New York, Los Angeles and Toronto before expanding nationwide on Aug 30.

Tony Leung, Ziyi Zhang, and Chang Chen star in The Grandmaster.

Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison serves as executive producer and financed the film, which opened the Berlinale earlier this year.
