I know it's never explicitly stated in No Escape or on its Wikipedia, but what language are the natives of the country speaking, and what is the written language we see on signs/maps throughout the movie?


From the wikipedia article for the movie...

Co-writer Drew Dowdle says, "'We worked very closely with the Thai government and there were a lot of things they wanted us to shy away from ... So although the film shows a coup breaking out in a Southeast Asian city, ... it never specified the country. We were very careful not to make it Thailand in the movie, so there was no Thai language used'", said Drew. "'None of the signage is Thai and most of the language that the native population is speaking is a combination of Laotian, hill-tribe languages and other languages,'" however they are actually speaking Khmer, native Cambodian.
