Like countless other gamers, I loved Ubisoft’s 2003 action-adventure title, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It’s been by far the most enjoyable in the series, although I have a soft spot for the 2008 outing “Prince of Persia” that was based around Zoroastrianism. A few people didn’t care for the cel-shaded graphics but I thought it was visually spectacular.
Anyways, it seems a game adaptation is in the works, and recently the trailer for Prince of Persia: Sands Of Time popped up on the Interwebs. Directed by Mike Newell (Four Weddings and a Funeral, Donnie Brasco, Love in the Time of Cholera), the film is to contain a mountain of CGI and occasionally star a few humans; those humans being Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, and Alfred Molina. The plot is thus – a rogue prince who reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess to safeguard an ancient dagger that allow its possessor to rule the world. The villians seek to smite said heroes to gain the relic for themselves. It’s not rocket surgery folks.
Have a look at the trailer after the jump.
