Hopefully a big success. I m sure 8-))
As a youth in Samoa about 30years ago a man sat down with myself and a friend, just 2 Samoan lads kicking back. We had some Samoan Pancakes and were drinking a brew of Koko Samoa. He introduced himself and even to this day I pinch myself. It was Steven Spielberg !! In Samoa the old kungfu movies were the go and mainstream media hadn’t hit off so it wasn’t until I came back home to New Zealand and realised I had come as close as anyone could have with Movie making genius!! Now that He’s teaming up with Sir Peter Jackson to take on Tin Tin….Absolutely the best !!
Absolutely love this story, Emile!
