Posted Thu May 30, 2013 at 12:00 PM PDT by

The Chinese crime drama starring Chow Yun-Fat and Sammo Hung is bound for Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Well Go USA will be releasing 'The Last Tycoon' on Blu-ray on September 17.

From Hong Kong action superstar Chow Yun-Fat and powerhouse director Jing Wong comes a story of the rise and fall of real-life gangster Cheng Daqi, spanning 30 tumultuous years in Shanghai. For Cheng, innocence and young love are shattered by circumstance, wrongful imprisonment, murder, and escape. He finds himself in the crime gangs of Shanghai and apprenticed to the local "tycoon" (Sammo Hung). As the years pass, Cheng rises to the upper echelons of power and finds himself torn between the love of two women, the murderous plots of the secret service, and the looming threat of war that may destroy the entire city.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, and the only supplement that appears to be included on this release is a trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
