After A 3-Year Search, This Model Is Playing The Late Anita Mui In Upcoming Biopic
It will be 31-year-old Hongkong model Louise Wong's film debut. No pressure, indeed.
Fans of late Cantopop diva Anita Mui will soon get to see their idol's life on the big screen.
According to those who knew Anita well, the showbiz legend had always wanted to make movies that could leave lasting legacies.
In 2003, director Zhang Yimou created a role specially for Anita in his wuxia epic House of Flying Daggers. However, she passed away from cervical cancer before she could film any of her scenes.
Now, film producer Bill Kong, who produced Daggers as well as the Oscar-nominated Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, is going to honour Anita's wish by turning her dramatic life into a movie.
The release date for the biopic, which is titled Anita, has not been announced.
