A Hollywood movie to be filmed at Cambodia’s Angkor Wat and Bokor

A Hollywood
film company, Indochina Productions, has received permission from the
Cambodian government to film the third series of ‘The Transformers’
science-fiction movie at Angkor Wat in Siem Reap province and Bokor in Kampot province.

Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith had announced his permission to Indochina Productions. “I have given the greenlight for them to film the movie in Siem reap and in Bokor in accordance with the request from the production company”, he wrote in his Facebook account.

Mr.
Nicholas Simon, producer of Indochina Productions, said the third
series of the science-fiction “Transformers 3 – Dark Side of the Moon”
will be shot in Cambodia in February 2011 at the Angkor Temple Complex
and Bokor Hill Station.

“Transformers 3” is the third part of the well-known science-fiction movie about TRANFORMER robots defending the earth.

“We
want to shoot in Cambodia as it is one of the most beautiful countries
around. With both Angkor Wat and Cambodia’s natural wonders, we will be
able to maintain the large production scale
of TRANFORMERS while giving the impression that the story is traveling
all around the planet earth,” said Mr. Nicholas Simon in his letter
addressed to Cambodian Minister of Information H.E. Khieu Kanharith.

This production will highlight
the beauty the Angkor Temple Complex to a worldwide audience, he said,
adding that it is estimated that over 500 million people have seen the
previous two Transformers and with TRANFORMERS 3, millions more will
discover the beautiful landscapes and cultural heritage of Cambodia.

Mr.
Simon also recalled his good experiences in film production working in
Cambodia on projects such as ORACLE, Matt Dillon’s CITY OF GHOSTS and
Legendary Pictures’ I AM THAT MAN.
