Malaysian resort operator Genting Malaysia Berhad has announced a RM400 million tie-up with Hollywood studio Twentieth Century Fox to transform the Genting Highlands theme park along the Selangor-Pahang border.
The Edge reported today a Genting Malaysia statement that said the transformed theme park will be the first international Twentieth Century theme park in the world.
Genting said that their current theme park operations will close from Sept 1, 2013 to facilitate the project and would reopen in 2016.
The statement said the transformed theme park would feature Twentieth Century Fox's recognised film brands, including Ice Age, Rio, Alien vs Predator and Night at the Museum.
Genting chairman Tan Sri Lim Kok Thay and Twentieth Century Fox president for consumer products Jeffrey Godsick signed the agreement today, according to the statement.
There are a slew of theme parks in Malaysia and Singapore, such as Legoland Resort in Johor and Universal Studios in Singapore's Sentosa Island. - July 26, 2013.
