Paramount Pictures, 2000-2002
Originally an Oliver Stone project, the Beyond Borders team came to Cambodia in summer 2000 for a preliminary scout. UK-based location manager Sam Breckman worked with Hanuman Films co-founders Nick Ray and Kulikar Sotho, scouting around the temples of Angkor, the capital Phnom Penh and the South Coast. Oliver Stone eventually dropped the project and the script did the rounds for a year or more.
It was finally shot in 2002 with Director Martin Campbell and Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen starring. It was released in October 2003. Hanuman Films worked with the Art Department, sourcing props and costumes from the late-1980s communist period in Cambodia for the set in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
