Prince of Persia Movie Poster

Jake Gyllenhaal looking princely.

Empire Online just posted the first couple of very convincing-looking posters for the upcoming big-screen adaptation of the Prince of Persia. Jake Gyllenhaal (Zodiac, Brokeback Mountain, Jarhead) stars as a ‘Rogue Prince’ named Dastan who must team up with a princess named Tamina (Gemma Aterton) to safeguard a mystical dagger that can unleash the Sands of Time, which can allow it’s wielder to reverse time and rule the world.

Check out the original article (and larger, complete versions of the posters) here.

Well, what can I say? The poster looks nice and slick, and Mr. Gyllenhaal certainly looks the part of the ragged adventurer. The Prince of Persia seems to be a great fit for a movie adaptation, and Disney was able to turn Pirates of the Carribbean into a hit- why not this classic title? I’m just kinda disappointed it’s based on the older games, and not the recent release… I would have liked to see a live-action Elika… Heheh.

Color me interested. The film is due out next year.
