Prince of Persia: Sands Of Time Movie Confirmed

The rumors are confirmed and it is true that there is really a Prince of Persia movie franchise in the making.
Before anything else, here is the plot of the movie, based on the video game: Prince of Persia, Sands of Time.

Set in medieval Persia, this is the story of an adventurous prince who teams up with a rival princess to stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world. The prince was tricked however by the dying Vizier to unleash the Sands of Time that destroys a kingdom and transforms its people into demons. The prince, realizing his fatal mistake, must save his own kingdom and it is up to him and the princess to return the sands to the hourglass with the use of the Dagger of Time, which also gives him a limited control over the flow of time.

According to IMDB, the movie is set to be released on May 28 in the year 2010. The movie is said to be directed by Mike Newell, who’s got movies like : The Mona Lisa Smile, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, under his belt and to be produced by the legendary Jerry Bruckheimer. The cast will be featuring Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan, Ben Kingsley as Nizam the Vizier, and Gemma Arterton as Tamina.
I am not one who appreciates the videogame based movie franchise since most that came into the big screen like Resident Evil, Silent Hill, Alone in the Dark, Hitman, Final Fantasy and as the list goes on end up as a disappointment to expectant gamers like me for expecting the movie to live up to what it was in the video games. But sadly, a twist of the plot here, a dead character here may seem like a glorified cinematic twist of fate for the non-gaming populace, it is a big deal for the rest of the other half of the populace watching the movie and say “Oh man, he/she wasn’t supposed to die.” Emphasis on supposed to means that we tend to value the movie the same way we value its videogame counterpart.

But enough of my rants, the movie poster of the Prince of Persia: Sands of time is said to appear in Jerry Bruckheimer’s upcoming chick flick, Confessions of a Shopaholic to be shown in theaters on the 13th of February 2009.


This should be a good movie.

Thanks for reminding me about this.



Goodness, Now it seems like forever before it will even be put out for me to see. It does look like it will be great though.
