Hollywood star Michelle Yeoh is apparently planning to play Aung San Suu Kyi in a film about the Burmese pro-democracy leader. Yeoh visited Suu Kyi to discussed the plan and both “had dinner together Monday night”, Suu Kyi’s lawyer Nyan Win said. “I understand she is planning to play her in a film in the near future,” the BBC quoted the lawyer as saying.
The Malaysian actor is best known for her role in the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow never Dies. Yeoh was also seen talking to Suu Kyi and her younger son Kim Aris at Rangoon airport on Tuesday as both the actor and Aris were waiting to board planes to leave the country.
Aris had arrived in Rangoon on 23 November and seen his 65-year-old mother for the first time in a decade. Kyi was released from house arrest on 13 November - less than a week after the country''s first election for 20 years.
