The Next Disney Prince?
No, you have not stumbled on to another "Tween" site, this is not some teen magazine and no that's not a picture of a guy named Biff.
Well, that rumor we reported back in April has turned out to be true...
Jake Gyllenhaal will star in "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," the Mouse and Jerry Bruckheimer Films' adaptation of the video game which Mike Newell("Donnie Brasco", "Mona Lisa Smile", "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire") is directing.
Gyllenhaal will play Dastan, a young prince in sixth century Persia who must join forces with Tamina(played by new hottie Gemma Arterton), a feisty and exotic princess, to prevent a villainous adviser to the Prince's father(think, Jafar... live-action style) from possessing the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that can reverse time. Filming begins in July.
Gyllenhaal is a very good actor(no comment on the beefcake, you ladies will have to provide those...), but doesn't really look the part I pictured. But, the miracle of make-up can do wonders. Maybe even magic... errr, Disney magic.
