FILM: Jake Gyllenhaal in "Prince of Persia"

Jake Gyllenhaal is about to embark on his first epic fantasy adventure, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, with Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) directing. Not only is it an epic, but it's based on a video game. This is a new frontier for the diligent character actor, but I'm sure one that his fans will follow him to.

Gyllenhaal will play Dastan, a young prince of 6th Century Persia, who pairs up with Princess Tamina (new Bond girl Gemma Arterton) to "prevent a nobleman from acquiring the Sands of Time -- a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world."

It's slated for a Summer 2009 release. Interested?
