Yao Ming to make guest appearence in upcoming China/USA film

On January 27th, 1979, Deng Xiaoping became the first Chinese leader to ever visit the white house. Thirty-six years later, a movie is being made about this visit and it will feature one of China’s biggest international stars; Yao Ming.

The movie, title ‘Tornado 29’, is a documentary of the¬†failed assasination of Deng Xiaoping while he was on his visit. So it will be interesting to see what Yao, who is known as a liberal Chinese citizen, will have to say about the former leader.
