Aaron Aziz to Star in a Sheikh Muszaphar Biopic

After a long long silence, Malaysia's first "astronaut", Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor Al-Masrie came forward and announced that he had been approached by KRU Studios and they talked extensively about making a movie about his life.


"Initially I was hesitant about the idea because I've kinda gotten used to living in my newfound privacy. But then I compromised when they came to me a second time, and made some major changes to the script. Now it's a cool action movie, kind of like the story of my life meets Armageddon [1998]"

What he's basically saying is that it is now a lot less about his life and more about a fictionalised version of himself. Well guess what, that was almost a year ago and reportedly the movie is now past its pre-production stage. Although KRU Studios kept things pretty tightly under wraps, it has been leaked that Aaron Aziz was cast as the titular character.

A leaked production still
Aaron Aziz who had recently dazzled local cinema-goers by realistically portraying a gangster, so much that many confused it as being a docu-drama of some sort, offending some organisations while they're at it. When asked about a Singaporean portraying a Malaysian icon, he had this to say;

"It shouldn't be a problem. Talents come first while ethnicity and nationality should come last. Besides, I kinda look like the guy, don't you think?"

Director Yusri Abdul Halim defended his choice, saying that he was really impressed by Aaron Aziz's performance. He recalled that while filming, Aaron Aziz got so into character that during a conversation, Yusri referred to him as "Mus" for hours without Aaron Aziz realising it.

Yusri further commented that he's going to top himself, and bring something new to the table that nobody has ever seen before, namely the groundbreaking CGI that will make "Merong Mahawangsa seem like a low-budget indie film".

Yes, this article is a joke.
