An upcoming movie titled《大胃王》or “Food King”, directed by local Director Kelvin Sng, this film will feature 54 different kinds of Singaporean food for SG54.
The script was written by filmmaker Shawn Tan six years ago during his university days, and Shawn has since been involved full-time in his company’s projects after joining a movie company, but a film about his food passion has always been at the back of his mind.
Shawn is now glad to entrust this story to his good friend and movie director Kelvin Sng.
Kelvin’s debut feature film “Taxi! Taxi!” starring top comedians Mark Lee and Gurmit Singh and inspired by the local best seller “Diary of a Taxi Driver”, was released theatrically in both Singapore and Malaysia in January 2013.
It was the second highest grossing local film after Jack Neo’s “Ah Boys to Men 2” for that year. Besides being a box office success, “Taxi! Taxi!” was also the first official entry from Singapore at the ASEAN International Film Festival and Awards 2013 held in Sarawak, where it also won the Special Jury Award.
In 2016, Kelvin directed his second feature film “The Fortune Handbook”, starring Christopher Lee, Mark Lee and Li Nanxing. The CNY-themed comedy film was theatrically released in Singapore and Malaysia on 26 January and 2 February 2017 respectively.
Both “Taxi! Taxi!” and “The Fortune Handbook” crossed the million dollar mark at box offices in Singapore and Malaysia, earning Kelvin the title of million dollar director （百万导演）by the media.
Shawn believing that Kelvin will fulfil his story’s creative vision.
