    Great Khmer Empire

    Jet & Angelina? Do you think she'll chide him for being short?
    Jet Li, Angelina Jolie targeted for new movie in Cambodia 2010-09-22 21:09:53

    PHNOM PENH, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- A famous Chinese action movie star Jet Li (Chinese name: Li Lianjie), and American movie actress Angelina Jolie are expected to be included in a new movie to be produced in Cambodia.

    In a press conference held on Wednesday in Phnom Penh, Thomas Magyar, a project manager for the planned movie, and Tony Schiena, a project coordinator and a Hollywood star said the film they had planned to produce will be named as "Great Khmer Empire."

    They said the film might cost approximately 70 million U.S. dollars and it will need about three years to make it, saying the large time span will be caused by the consultations with Cambodian government and historians on accuracy of the history as well as the script writing.

    Both Tony Schiena and Thomas Magyar said, to date, they are looking at several famous movies stars such as Jet Li, Chinese action star, Angelina Jolie, an American movie actress, John Cena, world's famous wrester and South Korean movie actress Song Hye Kyo among others.

    The movie will focus on history of Cambodia, especially, during the glorious period in 11th and 12th century under the King Jayavarman the VII, who until today, considered as the great King of Cambodia and who finished up the building of Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia.

    Angelina Jolie adopted a Cambodian son and was granted a Cambodian citizenship.

    She was also a star in the famous movie titled "Tomb Raider" which some parts of the episodes were also shot in Siem Reap province where many temples including Angkor Wat Temple are located in.

    Sounds interesting, I hope though that it doesn't get bogged down in politics as so much does over there. Also, although there are still documents and artifacts around as well as oral history, many historical documents were destroyed and some of the highest scholars were murdered during the Khmer Rouge regime. Nonetheless I hope it reaches fruition, I would like to see such a project.
