    I try to google this guy name…Thomas Magyar and Tony Cena but can’t seem to find it…If anyone find a link either to their info please let me know. I been thinking about this for LONG time doing this movie about our past. I try to listen to his interview but the translator info wasn’t all that great. Did he said his studio is PACBELL GRAND ASIA? Well anyway if anyone got the info on this please post it.

    That’s a weird combination I just don’t think he’s up to par with her. Never the less I look foward to it being that it’s based in Cambodia and the fact that Angelina Jolie is hella sexy is definitely a plus.

    Maybe Angelina Jolie plays King Jayavaraman’s wife.
    Unlike the queens in East Asian, Khmer’s were very educated back then. They were highly respected and very much involved in politic.

    You shouldn’t be so surprised to see that in Hollywood! There’s so many movies where the lead actors aren’t the nationalities they portray.

    Chow Yun Fat isn’t Thai. “The King and I”
    John Wayne isn’t Mongolian. “Genghis Khan”
    Yul Brynner isn’t Thai. “The King and I”
    Zhang Ziyi, Gong Li, and Michelle Yeoh aren’t Japanese. “Memoirs of a Geisha”
    Jake Gyllenhaal isn’t Persian. “The Prince of Persian: The Sands of Time”

    A number of Khmers will get supporting roles to flush out the fact that the movie is about the Khmer Empire, but to have them play major roles in a Hollywood production where the main object is to make money off of your actors isn’t going to happen.

    Where you get the idea that it’s rare to hear about an upcoming movie? Usually a movie is announced well before actors are chosen. In this case, the actors are chosen, yet there’s no American sources to back it up. Angelina Jolie is one of the most popular actresses in the world. Surely we hear something about it. It’s a very rare occassion for so much information about an American movie without many American sources. If the director is parading around Khmer studios talking about this, and no American sites are listing it…it’s a rare case.

    To me, I have no problems with Japanese playing Chinese, or Chinese playing Khmers, or Khmers playing Vietnamese. Asians are Asians. It’s just retarded when they take a white person to play an Asian person. Acting is acting and you can play many roles, but sex and race is where the line is drawn. An White German can play a White Australian, but a white/asian guy can never play Martin Luther King or Obama.

    dude she made a lot of movies and you really never hear of all her upcoming movies being mainstream talk about all over the american news. be real and stop being dumb. Once the movies production is done, then maybe you will hear about it all over american sources.

    the reason is being discuss in Khmer media because is something big for us and not for american, this is the first time Hollywood making a movie about our ancient past. common sense man

    Not in today’s PC world – you can’t have a white man play a black man, but Robert Downey Jr. got away with it in “Tropic Thunder” only because of so-called satire. You can get away with anything if you label your work being satire.

    I know! Just because Khmer media and Khmer people are the only ones to discuss the realization of a Hollywood production about the Khmer Empire doesn’t mean its not going to occur.

    Everything has to be mainstream for it to be true? Nonsense!

    I’m not asking for it to be on ET…i’m just asking for American links about it. All AJ’s movies are announced online before she makes it. If it’s an American movie, obviously, there would be American news organizations online that would report it. If it’s a movie that is targeted to non-Khmers, non-Khmer news organizations has to be talking about it. Even low budget movies with less star power or unheard of actors that’s directed towards one Asian country still makes American news. Yet it doesn’t seem like there’s any other American sources about an epic movie with a strong cast.

    And just to add…John Cena? Seriously! John Cena? They’re making an epic movie and John Cena is thought of?

    Maybe this movie will be made? You’re still wrong on your argument. It indeed would be a rare case for so much information to be out about a movie without much/any sources.
