Chinese filmmaker Wong Kar-wai is not only gearing up to shoot his next film after years of working on the script, he’s also has confirmed himself that all of his previous works are undergoing restorations.

Speaking with Filmmaker Magazine at the Hawaii International Film Festival, Wong confirmed that his studio Jet Tone Films are completing painstakingly careful and long in the works 4K restorations of all of his films with a theatrical tour of them planned for 2020 – timed to the 20th anniversary of his most acclaimed work In the Mood for Love.

The street has Janus Films and The Criterion Collection holding the  U.S. rights to these restorations with  a Criterion box set in the works. Hopefully the box set would included the out-of-print Chungking Express along with the 2046, The Grandmaster, Happy Together and Fallen Angels.

Wong’s next film is Blossoms which follows three Shanghai residents from the early 1960s through to the 1990s and is based on Jin Yucheng’s 2013 novel.
