Kellie’s battle for happiness to be a movie
KELLIE Maloney’s life story of being boxing promoter Frank battling gender dysphoria to finding happiness as a woman is being made into a film.
US company Verdi Productions will first make a documentary, Kellie, tracing the 67-year-old’s life representing British heavyweight champion Lennox Lewis and her gender reassignment.
This will be followed by a feature film to be released next year. It comes after producers saw Kellie in a documentary about Lewis.
She said: “They were so impressed with what I did in his career, and read my book, that they started filming my life story too.”
Producer Chad Verdi said of Kellie: “She’s so much tougher than Lewis.”
