The soft-soap Hollywood director Ron Howard has been signed to film Lang Lang’s life story.
The executive producers are Lang Lang and his agent, Jean-Jacques Cesbron.
Howard made the recent glossy biopic of Pavarotti.
Objections are already being raised that westerners lacking in an intimate knowledge of China’s rcent history cannot grasp the background of the country’s greatest entertainment celebrity.
As a classically-trained pianist born in China, I believe it’s impossible to tell Lang Lang’s story without an intimate understanding of Chinese culture + the impact of the Cultural Revolution on artists & intellectuals + the effects of Western imperialism. Just saying.🧐 https://t.co/63B14TCsRB
