New movie on Armenian genocide to feature Hollywood stars

 
The Genex — due for release in 2015

Plans for a new movie dedicated to the centennial of the Armenian Genocide have been revealed, with a number of Hollywood stars expected to be involved in the production.

Armenian director Artak Sevada reportedly plans the screening of the movie on April 24, 2015 when Armenians around the world will be marking the 100th anniversary of the start of the Ottoman Empire’s genocidal policy during World War I that resulted in the killings and deportations of some 1.5 million Armenians. The systematic mass murder of Armenian Christians by Turkish Muslims during and just after World War 1 is denied to this day by Turkey which claims Armenians died in unrest.

According to the synopsis of the movie published on its official website, it tells about a “beautiful 25-year-old woman”, Sally Solomon, who “has spent years running from her family (and her own ethnic) history.” “But, when Sally’s father is murdered, she finds herself thrust into the middle of a vast conspiracy that puts her and the young lawyer trying to defend her against a large, powerful corporation hell bent on keeping secret its own dark involvement in the Armenian Genocide. As Sally will learn – history is a contact sport – and no one can hide from it.”

Two Hollywood stars – Natalie Portman and Armand Assante – have already reportedly signed papers to be involved in the movie to be produced by EdgeArt Entertainment and Sevada Productions, with an expected budget of $30 million.

Several other Hollywood actors, including megastars Al Pacino and Leonardo DiCaprio, are featured in the conceptual trailer currently published on the official movie website: www.thegenex.com

The disclaimer above it, however, makes it clear that the video has been edited using various existing films “to present investors with the ideology of the film and its potential cast and crew.”
