‘Prison Break’ star on the loose in Malaysia

PUTRAJAYA: Prison Break star Dominic Purcell is here to film his latest movie, Vikingdom, produced by Malaysia’s KRU studios.

The action-adventure epic, directed by Yusry Abdul Halim, is based on Nordic mythology.

“The mythic elements and heroic principles in the film appealed to me on many levels,” said Purcell, 41.
The British-Australian actor is best known for his role as Lincoln Burrows in the hit TV series Prison Break.
Vikingdom also stars British actors Craig Fairbrass and Jon Foo, and Norwegian actress Natassia Malthe.
The film follows the success of KRU’s Malay-language epic Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa (The Malay Chronicles), released early this year.
The studio’s executive president Norman Abdul Halim said they wanted the country to become a top filming location for producers and studios worldwide.
“We believe that the scope and quality of the film, as well as having these international stars on board, will convince people of what we can do.”
The stereoscopic 3D production began filming in Perak last month.
It is targeted for a worldwide release in early 2013.
