*A biopic of former NBA star Stephon Marbury and his move to China four years ago will go into production in the next year, according to Variety.
“My Other Home” tells the story of Marbury relocating to Beijing in 2011, where he transformed both himself and his Beijing pro team into champions. He’s expected to have a role in the film, Variety reports.
Production on “Home” is expected to begin in 2016 as part of a five film production deal between Village Roadshow Pictures Asia and China’s Beijing Hairun Pictures.
The deal was announced on Monday, at the Beijing International Film Festival by VRPA’s Ellen Eliasoph and Hairun Media chairman Liu Yanming. The BJIFF runs April 16-23.
