The announcement came just after Liu Ying said the pair would not play in the World Championships in Huelva, Spain, citing fatigue as the reason.
The director of the film, Adrian Teh, told the news portal that Peng Soon and Liu Ying did really well, considering that both of them have never acted before.
Adrian also revealed that he had wanted the shuttlers to be in the movie even before they won the silver medal at the Rio Olympic Games two months ago.
Their best achievement was reaching the quarter-finals in 2018 and at the last edition in Basel two years ago.
