Bruckheimer's Prince of Persia movie to star Jake Gyllenhaal, now with trailer


I remember that there was an actual Persian Prince in the running for the role, but I guess he didn’t work out. I was rooting for him. Jake Gyllenhaal is a good choice… but I think he needs to be more Persian.

Jake who? Its sad that a white guy got the role over an actual persian prince. = /

cuz no one wants to see a actual prince!

Donnie Darko or Donnie Wahlberg?

I clicked on this thread from the main forum page thinking that it would be titled “Bruckheimer’s Prince of Masturbation.”

Man, that contest would be a lot more fun if the contestants knew if they gave in, they would blow the fuck up when they climaxed…

NOW YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE ASIAN! :woot::amazed::shake::sad:

And I hope Michael Bay is directing. I’ve never seen sand just straight up explode before.

Clearly; he wasn’t princelike or Persian enough. Better to have the white dude from Brokeback Mountain.

BTW, fundamentalists in Iran are going to love this movie.

Well, the good news is the Americans are making a movie called Prince of Persia, with a Persian character as a hero.

Iran: :annoy: about time those jews did something right!

Yeah, that’s good news, right? That’s the GOOD news. …the bad news, is that the lead actor will be a white guy, who is most famous for playing a homosexual.

Iran: :amazed:

That’s a good point. What was that one movie…fuck. I can’t remember what it was. I know it involved snow and an avalanche or some shit. I remember the trailer had some big explosion, and I was like, “What the fuck? Since when does snow blow up?”

Just get cm punk to do it he looks like the character close enough. lol

It MIGHT work if they darken his skin and maybe change his features a little. Like what they did for Downey Jr in Tropic Thunder. He looks black to me (though I’ve only see shitty quality pics).

I might be moving to Morocco next month to work on this. :sweat:

If there is no SAG strike after June 30th, when SAG contracts end, then pre-production would start right after. Shooting is mainly in Morocco and some in London. I don’t want to live in Morocco. :shake:

I’ll give any video-game based movie a chance nowadays if it’s not directed by Uwe Bowels.

Watch them put Omar Sharif in it as old wise Arab guy and Tony Shaloub as token fat n bald Arab guy.

Be glad it’s not the 80s when Prince of Persia starring Dolph Lundgren would have been a possibility.

they should’ve casted the guy from “The Mummy” whatever his name is, u know who i’m talking about, long hair, dark skin, big sword

The game was hot garbage. Hopefully the movie doesn’t follow in its footsteps. I think Jake Gyllenhaal is a good actor. We shall see.

I find it hard to believe that theres not at least ONE good iranian/persian actor instead of this guy. This dude reminds me of a snowflake with facial hair. Iranians are going to be mmadd at us!

Can you name a good Persian/Iranian actor?

He’s Sudanese, but he already played Saladdin’s right hand man in Kingdom of Heaven.


Ummm, that dude looks kind of old to be playing the Prince of Persia character.

Well, we’ve already got the whitest looking Chun-li in history. This isn’t much of a stretch.
