Billionaire Heiress Has Really Good Taste In Movies
Megan Ellison really wants to see 'The Grandmasters' and doesn't feel like leaving the States.
Director of the upcoming Scientology movie The Master Paul Thomas Anderson isn't the only one to benefit from billionaire heiress Megan Ellison's good taste in movies. Now another beloved auteur is getting in on that sweet action, since she's picked up the North American distribution rights for Wong Kar Wai's movie about famed martial arts master and trainer of Bruce LeeIp Man called The Grandmasters (through her production company Annapurna Productions). This isn't the first movie to be made about Ip Man, as there's already been an Ip Man and Ip Man 2 to come out of Hong Kong. But Wong Kar Wai is a great director, so I'm excited about this even though it's not brand-new subject matter. And apparently Megan Ellison feels the same way I do, ergo, she has good taste in movies. Maybe as a lover of film she'll fund my project to pay for Hulu Plus next. (/Film)
