His following film, ''2046'', a sequel of sorts to ''Film/InTheMoodForLove'' (which was itself a sequel of sorts to ''Days of Being Wild''), was several years in the making, and was finally released in 2004 (a running joke among the crew was that the film would only be finished in time for year 2046). It's partially set in the year 2046 because that is the last year before UsefulNotes/HongKong's period of self-rule ends and, in 2047, the Chinese government begins to run it just like it runs the rest of the country. In 2007 he directed ''My Blueberry Nights'', his first English-language film, starring Norah Jones, and in 2012 ''Film/TheGrandmaster'', a biopic of martial arts master Ip Man.
