JAKARTA: Another sports-themed film is coming up for Indonesian cinema-goers, with Ari Sihasale launching his movie King next week.

Inspired by the life of national badminton legend Liem Swie King, the movie's release just happens to coincide with the 2009 Indonesian Open.

"If it can help support the Indonesian Open, then why not? It is made to show our appreciation for badminton athletes in the country. A lot of people don't realize that badminton has taken this country to the international level," said Ale, as he is known.

"We also want to remind people not to take our sporting heroes for granted once they are no longer active. That's why we choose people like Lim Swie King and Heryanto Arbi, so that people know that they are still around."

King, Ale's first film as producer and director, tells the story of three kids who idolize Liem Swie King and strive to be like him. Ale hopes that movies such as this help inspire a greater sense of national pride among Indonesians.

Ale collaborated with his wife Nia Zulkarnaen on the film's production, which began in February. The film is scheduled for release on June 25.
