Prince of Persia movie; Gyllenhaal and Arterton sign up
Time after time we've seen some of our favourite video game franchises mauled and molested by the likes of Uwe Boll and others.
It comes as no surprise to us when struggling actors allow themselves to risk their reputation by signing up for a video game movie. So imagine how we felt when we saw that none other than Oscar-winning Jake Gyllenhaal has put his neck on the line for the forthcoming Prince of Persia film.
Along with the arrival of cast member Gemma Arterton (pictured), the film is being put together by Jerry Bruckheimer and is apparently directed by Mike Newell, so there is a fair chance that it might actually not suck!
You can expect to see the Prince show his Sands of Time at cinemas in 2009.
