Shooting of Alexander the Great to Create 20,000 Seasonal Jobs
Morocco, Economics, 11/25/2002
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.
