  1. It will be great if this film happens. The filming is scheduled to start in November, but in The Star , today14th, it says “HUSBAND-WIFE TEAM: Harun and Lara are planning to film a documentary on tigers in Malaysia next. ” So is this before or after the archaeology filming? There is no mention at all in this article about Perak Man etc.

  2. This is a “dangerous” project, hopefully, the Malaysian Government will not compromise or distort the historical facts as they have so ungraciously done in the past. Dumb names like “Puteri Hang Li Poh” or Hang Tuah, “Wira Melayu” are silly concepts and are glaring errors contrary to the truth.

  3. Considering the project was scheduled to “kick off” in Nov 2006, I wonder how far it has progressed.

  4. Ha Ha, knowing Malaysian Speed, It will probably be ready AFTER the NEXT Olympics, and I mean AFTER BEIJING. Malaysia is SO LAID BACK. In fact, if it is any more laid back, it would be a Picture.

    Truly Asia, Truly slow motion
