    Alexander the Great
    Release Date: TBA 2004
    Studio: Universal Pictures, 20th Century Fox
    Director: Baz Luhrmann
    Screenwriter: Ted Tally
    Starring: Leonardo DiCaprio
    Genre: Action, Drama, War
    Plot Summary: Based on the trilogy of novels by Valerio Manfredi ("Alexander: Child of a Dream", "Alexander: The Sands of Ammon", and "Alexander: The Ends of the Earth"), this is the true story of the Macedonian conqueror, Alexander the Great (356-323 B.C.). In 336 BC King Philip was killed and Alexander ascended to the throne of Macedonia. Within the next twelve years Alexander conquered almost the entire known world of his era. Though Alexander made use of the well-oiled army created by his father, he pushed the limits of Macedonian & Greek power to levels King Philip could not have dreamed of.

    The shooting in Morocco of Baz Luhrman's Super-production "Alexander the Great" in 2004 will create 20,000 seasonal jobs, said production director at the Moroccan Cinema Center (CCM).

    Jobs will be created as of the beginning of the studio construction works in February, and during technical operations, the executive told MAP news agency.

    Craftsmen of different specialties and technicians will be hired to work in the Epic relating the conqueror's history, and starring Leonardo Di Caprio.

    Workers will get "fair" salaries in comparison with those generally earned in Morocco, but lower than those of Europe and the US, the executive said, stressing Moroccan authorities' efforts to attract such investments.

    Alexander the Great is likely to become the second biggest production of all time with 5,000 extras and a US$ 150 million budget, including 50 million dollars for shooting in Morocco.

    The LA Times revealed a new picture of Colin Farrell and Angelina Jolie in the upcoming epic ALEXANDER. The LA Times also has a pretty nice article about Oliver Stone's biopic. Here is a clip: Thanks to DH for the heads up.

    Stone says: "One thing that comes out in this film is that the Olympic gods start to lose their hold on man. Mankind goes toward Christianity, that comes 300, 400 years later, but men start to look for personal salvation as opposed to the Olympic gods, who weren't enough. Alexander shows you that man can do it, become the highest reflection of gods".

    Farrell doesn't look like he can pull it off... but then again, I don't think Leo can either.
    Are you a Mexi-CAN or a Mexi-CAN'T?
