"I never ever ever imagined life in 2020 would end up this way."
How many times have you heard a friend say this in one way or another this year?
It's really been quite an experience kan.
Anyway, ensuring that Malaysians and the future generation do not forget, a movie detailing Malaysia's battle with COVID-19 will be released early next year.
According to a report by The Star
, the movie will be handled by three production houses, have six directors, 100 artistes and 200 crew members.
Only three of the actors have been announced so far.
They are Zizan Razak, Zul Ariffin and Jack Lim.
A brave undertaking
Veteran actor, host and film producer, Datuk Rosyam Nor who first mooted the idea said that it was quite scary to make such an ambitious film in these times.
"It's scary to make a film without the help of others in this climate. The era of making a film all by yourself has passed," he said during the launch of the movie entitled 'Juang'.
Rosyam's production house Suhan Movies along with producers Matt Lai from Asia Tropical Films and Jack Lim from The Film Engine will all work together to bring Malaysia's COVID-19 story to the big screen.
The six directors are Aziz M. Osman, Kabir Bhatia, Eirma Fatima, Osman Ali, Yusry Abdul Halim and Lai.
"This is an important film that will serve as a reference for future generations when they ask, 'What was life like during the pandemic?'" said Rosyam.
Seems like it's going to be quite a movie and we can't wait for this one to come out.
