The movie, Senior Project, may well make Lin one of the world's youngest screenwriters. Lin's success has inspired more young people to dream in Hollywood.

"If a teenager from Hong Kong can get his movie made in Hollywood, maybe there's hope for the rest of us," Camilla Grove, an aspiring screenwriter and recent college graduate, wrote in her blog.

"Most aspiring screenwriters never get the chance to see their stories played out on the silver screen. As a young screenwriter hopeful myself, this fact alone scares me half to death," wrote Grove.

"As a recent college graduate trying to make it in Hollywood as a writer, I was inspired by Jeremy Lin's ambition and drive at 16. I immediately wanted to root for him and see his film get made," Grove continued.

Even with the name, the film still needs help in getting to that "Hollywood level." Lin and his team have launched a campaign under Kickstarter, a funding platform for creative projects, to boost the film's 750,000-dollar budget.

Now Lin has reached his goal and will join the team in Los Angeles for filming of his new movie next month.
