Wayne Wang


Wayne Wang will direct a film adaptation entitled "A Thousand Years of Good Prayers" from Yiyun Li's acclaimed novel of the same title.

It's another big screen adaptation project for Wayne Wang. "The Joy Luck Club" director has been tapped to helm "A Thousand Years of Good Prayers", a screen version of Yiyun Li's award-winning novel of the same title, Production Weekly has reported.

Slated to begin the production by this October in Spokane, Washington, the film version will be made based on a screenplay that centers on a Chinese man who travels to the Pacific Northwest to mend his relationship with his recently-divorced daughter. Upon landing his feet in U.S, he unexpectedly bumps into an older, Farsi-speaking Iranian woman, and though they face the inability to communicate with a common language, a bond begins to take form between them.

A collection of stories about life in modern China and the United States, "Good Prayers" was Li's debut as a novelist and has won her several honors, including those of PEN/Hemingway Award and California Book Award for the first fiction.
