Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has confirmed that the British filmmaker will take directing duties in the game-based film project.

The fate of Walt Disney Pictures' "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" now positively lies in the hands of "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" Mike Newell. Confirmation on the British filmmaker's involvement in the project came from producer Jerry Bruckheimer's mouth during a "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" junket held on Monday, December 3, 2007.

"We hired a very interesting director - Mike Newell - who did one of the Harry Potter's and also did Donnie Brasco and he's a very inventive, ingenious director and I think he's going to bring something really special to it," so Bruckheimer told Collider.com. "We have a screenplay, we're just starting to develop the look of it. It'll be unique and fresh."

The renowned film producer further added that casting has not started yet and that filming would not begin until June 2008. As for the period of when the flick, a live-action version of Ubisoft's popular video game of the same name, will take place, the man was noticed to be not very sure about it, but assured that the picture would definitely be a period feature as depicted in the original.
