Asia’s tennis icon Li Na’s life will be made into a movie by a famous Hong Kong director Peter Chan. The movie, which is going to be released in 2016, is based on her autobiography “Li Na: My Life.” She will be working as a consultant. “I am very humbled by the fact that a director of Peter Chan’s talent is going to direct it. Some of the best movies in China that have come out in the last couple of years have been made by Peter,” said Ms Li. She became a global star and the second-highest paid female athlete in the world after she won the French Open title in 2011. Li, 32, has retired from tennis last year. Now the question is if the Director will cast an actress or a tennis player for the lead role.
