Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time looks like one frigging sweet fantasy-adventure flick. Prince of Persia or POP is based upon the best selling video game of the same title and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton and Alfred Molina.
Gyllenhaal portrays Dastan, a young prince in 6th century Persia who must join forces with Tamina (Arterton), a super sexy princess, to prevent a villainous nobleman from possessing the Sands of Time…a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.
Production commenced in September on location in Morocco and London. Directed by Mike Newell (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”) and based on Jordan Mechner’s hugely popular video game POP will be one for all the gamers out there. But ladies don't worry this flick ain't going to be nerdy, plus you get to see a buff Gyllenhaal topless!
Jake Gyllenhaal (“Zodiac,” “Jarhead,” “Brokeback Mountain”) stars in the title role, joined by newcomer Gemma Arterton (the new James Bond adventure “Quantum of Solace”), Academy Award® winner Sir Ben Kingsley (“Gandhi”) and Alfred Molina (“Spider-Man 2”).
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is due for release in May 2010
