KUALA LUMPUR – A movie based on the life story of Malaysia’s world number one badminton player, Datuk Lee Chong Wei will be released in 2018.
“For three years we have been persuading Chong Wei to give us the rights to film his life story and at last he agreed and gave us the rights. In the mean time, we are currently persuading him to also act in the movie. We did not have his consent yet.
“This will be an authentic story about Chong Wei. According to our plan, we will start filming the movie by middle of 2017 and would be released in 2018,” said producer Josiah Chieng when met at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), here today.
