MIRI: A romance movie spanning mainland China and northern Sarawak is in the pipeline, with the movie to prominently feature scenes in Miri city, Mulu National Park and Niah National Park.
Called Blue Tears, the movie will be the first film jointly produced by China and Sarawak.
There are also plans to have the movie made available online.
Assistant Sarawak Tourism Minister Datuk Lee Kim Shin said the movie will be a tremendous boost for Sarawak in that it will give widespread publicity about this state, especially the northern tourism hubs of Miri, Mulu and Niah.
He witnessed the signing of the deal for the film between China-Malaysia Universal Television Company (Msia) and Global Business Club International Group China at a hotel here yesterday.
“This movie is going to feature the beautiful Miri city and its nearby beaches as well as the wonders of Mulu and Niah.
“The movie will also feature our multiracial composition and multireligious harmony.
“This project is not only good for tourism but it also speaks volumes of the excellent bilateral and historic ties between Sarawak and China,” he added.
The movie will feature famous stars from China including Ringo Yu, who featured in Jackie Chan’s Police Story movies.
