He’s a singer, songwriter, actor, director, and music producer. Now, Jay Chou has added another title to his name – film producer.
As reported on CRI News, the Taiwanese superstar has recently begun promoting the new movie “10,000 Miles”, which also marks his first attempt at producing a movie.
“Finding the right cast, including the director and the lead stars, was my main task. I also worked alongside the script supervisor in ensuring that the script didn’t stray away from the story it was adapting,” he said, adding that the movie was inspired from co-producer Kevin Lin’s experiences as a marathon runner.
Jay also expressed confidence in his first attempt at producing a movie, which took him three years to fulfill.
“My ambition right now is to direct a Hollywood movie, which I would also star in as the main lead,” said Jay, who is waiting for the perfect project to do it.
Directed by Simon Hung, “10,000 Miles” stars Megan Lai, Darren Wang and Sean Huang.
The movie tells the story of Kevin, a young, fearless runner from a rough neighborhood in Taiwan, who falls in love with his tough coach Ellie. When Ellie becomes sick and distant, Kevin fights to survive and conquer the famous 10,000 Miles Silk Road Ultramarathon in order to win her heart.
