Village Roadshow Finds Writers for ‘Ping Pong Diplomacy’ (Exclusive)

20 October 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Village Roadshow Pictures has set Patrick Burleigh and Will Widger to write “Ping Pong Diplomacy.”

Story Mining & Supply Co. is producing the pic which is based on the Nicholas Griffin book “Ping-Pong Diplomacy: The Secret History Behind the Game That Changed the World.”

The book is based on the true story of the 1971 Table Tennis World Championships in Japan, where the unlikely friendship between American player Glenn Cowan and top China player Zhuang Zedong set the media ablaze and drove both administrations scrambling at the highest levels. The chance encounter led to the historic summit between Richard Nixon and Mao Zedong, the first of its kind in over two decades.

Both scribes also wrote the animated feature “Wish,” which is currently in production at Prana Studios with Cory Edwards directing.

Burleigh is represented by UTA and Eml Entertainment, and Widger by Verve and Kaplan Perrone. Both writers are represented by attorney Lawrence Kopeikin. »
