Actor Val Kilmer is thoroughly excited about going to Morocco to shoot scenes for the epic ALEXANDER - mainly because Angelina Jolie is his co-star.

Despite the May (03) bombings in Casablanca which killed 44 people and drastically reduced the number of film productions taking place in the North African country, Kilmer is undeterred about starring in the $200 million (GBP125 million) epic alongside Colin Farrell.

He says, "I'm not worried about going there at all. I'm really excited. Angelina Jolie is playing my wife, and I really think that she's such a genius."

Kilmer is due to arrive in Morocco this month (OCT03) for filming which is scheduled to conclude at the beginning of next year (04).
