    A couple of weeks ago I read on one of the forums about an epic film made in the far east, Korea I think. Does anyone know the name of this film? It was to be on the scale of Gone with the wind.

    Do you mean Suriyothai? This was an eight hour miniseries in Thailand that got a three hour theatrical release. It was the biggest movie in Thai film history. Coppola is working on a shortened (from three hours) version for US release.

    Are you talking about films in production now, or anytime? Anna and the King was reported to be the huge. Lots of extras, lavishly big sets, etc. just like the old epics. It was filmed in the Far East, but I don't remember where right now...
