From a travel host to actor, and now film producer – Malaysian star Henry Golding has just started his very own production company called the Long House Production. It’s in partnership with China’s Starlight Culture Entertainment Group with 2 features currently in the works.
Golding’s first feature under his production banner is an action adventure titled “The Inheritance”, based on an original story idea by Golding and Alistair Hudson, who will pen the script.
His second feature is an action-thriller called “Harrington’s Greatest Hits” which is about an arms dealing father who puts out a hit on his assassin son. Veteran television helmer James Strong is set to direct the film from a reimagined Black List script by Dutch Southern. Golding will star and produce the feature.
“Henry is the only actor/producer with a deal here, because we see him as a class of one,” said Starlight CEO and ATC Managing Director Peter Luo to The Hollywood Reporter.
Starlight is a China-backed firm that invested in “Crazy Rich Asians.” The company has deals with top director including James Wan, F. Gary Gray, Sylvester Stallone, Roland Emmerich, and Jon M. Chu.

“For me, it’s the real passion we all have for entertaining and telling stories. I am excited to bring the unique stories that come from my experiences and the time I’ve spent living in Asia, London, America, and all over the world, to the movies that I work on and the material I look forward to developing. Working with Peter and everybody at Starlight, we are able to make that possible,” Golding said as quoted.
Henry Golding gained international fame after starring as the leading man in box office hit movie “Crazy Rich Asians”. Since then, he has landed in plenty of movie roles including “A Simple Favor”, “Last Christmas” and “The Gentlemen”.
