Visionaries at 20th Century Fox are planning to create a new theme park in Malaysia featuring rides based on films like Ice Age, Life Of Pi and Alien. Film company bosses are working with officials at Resorts Royal Genting to revamp the Genting Outdoor Theme Park ready for a 2016 relaunch. In a joint press release, issued on Friday (26Jul13), executives at the two firms announced building work will begin in September (13) and the upgrade will cost $125 million (£83 million). Fox bosses' previous attempts at launching an international theme park flopped when the Fox Studios Backlot opened in Australia in 1999. It closed in 2001.
