Lead roles announced for Bruckheimer’s Prince Of Persia adapation

leave a comment »

Produced by Disney to be the Next Big Thing in much the same vein that the Pirates Of The Carribean films were, news has leaked out from Camp Bruckeheimer regarding the casting of the lead roles.

The title character, Prince Dastan, is to be played by none other than Jake ‘Jarhead/Donnie Darko’ Gyllenhaal, while Gemma Arterton (to be seen in the forth coming Bond movie Quantum Of Solace) has been cast as Tamina, an exotic Princess. It would seem that Hollywood’s historic penchant for casting A-listers in roles that don’t match their ethnicity continues unabated, but hopefully with the star power and studio that is behind this thing, we’ll get an entertaining film and not yet another vidgame-film trainwreck.

Fingers crossed.

Prince Of Persia starts filiming this July and is shooting for a late 2009 release.
