With her extraordinary talent and character, Nicol David has made her name around the world as the Squash Queen and the World Games’ Greatest Athlete of All Time.
Nicol recently shared on Instagram a photo about her debut biographical film, “I Am Nicol David,” which is currently under filming. The film will be produced by ACE Pictures Entertainment, a film production investment company together with a local digital media house.
It is known that local and international talents will star in the biopic. The film will be scripted in English by two well-known female screenwriters from Malaysia and the United States.
Liz Irving, her coach, will be played by a Hollywood actress.
When asked who will portray her, Nicol stated that the casting team would do a nationwide casting in Malaysia to find a suitable talent. Auditions will be held in both East and West Malaysia to find someone to fill the part of Nicol.
ACE Pictures has a distribution network and ties with sales agencies, so the film will not only be played locally but will also strive to break into major markets in the United States and Europe, according to the production company.
We can’t wait for the biopic to finish and catch our squash queen’s story on screen!
