On a red carpet more befitting a state affair than a paparazzi fest, I had the chance to interview the producers as well as See, who is in the midst of a book tour promoting her latest, Dreams of Joy. See views the movie as an extension of her book, and was enthused about the wider scope that film allows her words to take on.
See says there was no specific thing that she was sorry about seeing omitted in the translation of book to film, and looks forward to shepherding another of her books, currently in development, onto the big screen.
Both Sloan and Murdoch, who made headlines defending her husband, News Corp. (FOX’s parent company) Chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, from a pie throw during a Parliament proceeding, were attracted to the friendships and strong Asian female roles in the story. Their production company, Big Feet Productions, has several other projects in the pipeline.
Bulldog reporters that we are here at Wide Lantern, we tried to get Murdoch to talk about the pie-throwing incident, but, alas, she wanted to concentrate on discussing the film.
Check back soon for video interviews exclusively at Wide Lantern shot by Wilki Tom photography.
