Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time isn't due out for another year, but the buzz is already huge. Based on the insanely popular video game, Prince of Persia sees Jake Gyllenhaal as Dastan, the titular royal, who must return the Sands of Time to its hourglass before it unleashes a sandstorm that would destroy his kingdom. This weekend, we managed to squeeze a bit of info on the project out of producer Jerry Bruckheimer...
Have you seen any of Prince of Persia yet?
I've seen most of it. It looks fantastic. You won't recognize Jake Gyllenhall.
Did he do steroids to pump up for the role?
[Laughing.] No, no drugs. He just worked really hard. He's a cyclist anyway and he bikes all the time. We just had him do a little lifting but he looks fantastic.
Do you think that this will break the curse of terrible movies based on great video games?
Let's hope. Let's hope.
