The Prince of Persia

"Dreamy-eyed Jake Gyllenhaal, who's already a prince among his legion of fans, may be looking to play an actual prince in the upcoming action adventure PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME, the feature adaptation of the popular video game franchise of the same name. At least that's what the beautiful bastards over at "Latino Review" have uncovered. There's nothing official as yet, just an offer out to the sensitive man cake thesp but if there's any sort of official confirmation, we'll be sure to relay it to you. The story follows the titular prince as he journeys to find treasure using the "Dagger of Time" to control time itself. Jakey G can next be seen in the Jim Sheridan directed drama BROTHERS.

Extra Tidbit: Gyllenhaal has starred in 3 movies where he not only plays a real person, but the person who wrote the book upon which the film was based: Homer Hickham (OCTOBER SKY), Anthony Swofford (JARHEAD) and Robert Graysmith (ZODIAC).

Usually I don't like franchising superhero movies, but the thought of a blue-eyed Persian Jake, all shirtless and athletic bouncing over the sandy spaces just turn me on...;)

BTW, hi Kendra, hope you're doing well. :)

things are ok ;)
I guess this would be the chance for Jake to do a sort of "Alexander" type role, or like "Siddhartha" that Keanu Reeves played. I think of a persian prince as fancily dressed, an exotic Jake ;)
