Australian bestselling author and motivational speaker Nick Vujicic is making a movie about his life, slated for cinematic release in the United States in 2015 , he says.

Vujicic, who is in town to speak as well as promote his latest book, Stand Strong: You Can Overcome Bullying (And Other Stuff That Keeps You Down), made the announcement at a press conference at Times Centre on Friday. He said that the movie would be produced by a motion picture company he has set up with un-named partners, 10 Elephants Pictures .

"We have a budget for a class-A actor and a class-A director," he added, without revealing any more details.

He is also a keynote speaker at the 2014 National Achievers Congress, by worldwide seminar organisers Success Resources, at the Resorts World Convention Centre. The three-day congress runs until Sunday. Tickets to the Success Without Limits talk that Vujicic is speaking at have sold out.
