Henry Golding Starts Production Company, Lines Up 2 Action Movies
The Malaysian-born actor just started Long House Productions in partnership with China’s Starlight Cultural Entertainment Group.
He already has two action films in the works: The first is “The Inheritance,” based on an original story idea by Golding and Alistair Hudson, who will write the script.
He will also star in and produce the action-thriller "Harrington’s Greatest Hits" as an aging assassin discovers that his arms-dealing father has put out a contract on him. James Strong (whose credits include "Broadchurch" and "Downton Abbey") will direct the Black List script by Dutch Southern.
"I am excited to bring the unique stories that come from my experiences and the time I’ve spent living in Asia, London, America, and all over the world, to the movies that I work on and the material I look forward to developing,” Golding said in a statement.
Starlight is a Chinese-based firm that invested in "Crazy Rich Asians." The company, which has offices in Beverly Hills, has also made deals with "Aquaman" director James Wan, F. Gary Gray, and Roland Emmerich.
"Henry is the only actor/producer with a deal here, because we see him as a class of one," said Starlight CEO and ATC managing director Peter Luo.
