This is too hilarious. Just heard that HK actor Tony Leung is going to play Lee Kuan Yew in an upcoming movie about Singapore's post-independence years. It is a jointly-produced film between Hong Kong and Singapore titled “1965″. With a star cast of Tony Leung, Maggie Cheung and Oscar-nominee Julian Moore, the producers hope to to rewrite Singapore’s film history.

Within one hour, more than 100 comments came in fast and furious.... they went wild with imagination...
"Some one with Shek Kin's looks will be more suitable to play LKY."
"YOU HAVE GOTS TO BE KIDDING ME."
"I wonder who plays LHL, Eric Tsang?"
"Eric tsang can be MBT lah...hahaha"
"Gurmit Singh to be President Nathan !"

"Tony Leung: "I want to tell you a secret". "I'm a communist"
"Patricia Mok to be Mrs Lee ....LOL"
"Sure box office. A trip to the cinema will be a school excursion for all the school kids. Also free packet food for the aunties and uncles ( for once, the "no outside food" policy of cinemas will be waived)."
"Is this a stunt by PAP to reverse its ailing image & reputation?"
"Will it be a comedy?"
"wonders who's really funding the movie..."
"hey it would be interesting... to see LKY speaking mandarin... bcos back then he cant speak, read or write a word in mandarin!!! or r they going to get Tony to speak in English while the rest of the cast speaks... dialects? LOL"
