A weighty story
A feature-length biopic of NZ sporting icon Precious McKenzie is in the works, with London-based Precious UK Ltd and South Africa’s Unital Films International already on board. The screenplay, written by Tauranga’s Lance and James Morcan, was promoted at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, earning widespread interest from investors. McKenzie was born in South Africa but won weightlifting medals for England and NZ at the Olympic and Commonwealth Games respectively. He currently lives in Auckland.
