Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton Up for 'Prince of Persia'


The Academy Awards-nominated actor and the rising actress have both been signed to star in an adaptation of a popular video game, 'Prince of Persia: Sands of Time'.

Answering to the earlier speculation about the offering of "Prince of Persia" to the Hollywood leading actor Jake Gyllenhaal, it is now confirmed that the "Jarhead" star will be the Persian prince in the video game adaptation movie "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time". Joining the 27-year-old in the cast ensemble is the "Quantum of Solace" actress Gemma Arterton.

In the movie, the co-star of Heath Ledger in "Brokeback Mountain" will be taking the role of Dastan, while the "St. Trinian's" star will portray the feisty princess Tamina. Together, they will team up with "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire" helmer Mike Newell to bring the live action movie to the big screen using the script from Doug Miro, Carlo Bernard, Boaz Yakin and Jordan Mechner.

Based on the video game published by Ubisoft, "Prince of Persia" follows Dastan as he joins forces with Tamina in preventing a wicked ruler from taking over the Sands of Time which power of reversing time helps its owner to rule the world. The film produced by Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films is set to start filming in July in Morocco and England. It is hoped to hit the theaters on June 16 , 2009.
