The Empire Has More From Persia...



Over at Empire Magazine they have some exclusive pics from the set of Walt Disney Pictures "Prince of Persia" for all to see...

Go over and take a look at hunky Jake Gyllenhaal, who looks like he's walked out of the sequel to "300" with that new buff look of his. I want to see a trailer for this film to get the tone. The Mouse is certainly planning on this new Bruckheimer production to be its next trilogy.

Next summer, we'll see...

Jake Gyllenhaal is about as Persian as Mr. Echo is white. Video game movies never work, never have. The only one I'm looking forward to is Halo, and I trust Stuart Beattie with it since he did a great job on Collateral, my most favorite Michael Mann film. It'll eventually be made, patience is a virtue. Side note, G-Force was terrible, cliche dialouge, horrible story, and teaches kids that acting so called "street" from Tracy Morgan is the most annoying acting and further stereotype.

I've read the Halo script that Beattie wrote, and while I liked it, I don't think that you can stick to having Master Chief never have his face seen. It won't connect with audiences. It's like watching a guy with a motorcycle helmet on for two hours. Plus, they're going to have to find a way to do it within budget...

I'm hoping that this movie resembles the video game as much as the Pirates movies resemble the Disneyland ride - in title and spirit alone (and maybe some subtle references). Because the first poster is right, making movies based on video games never works. I also hope that this Bruckheimer movie will be as successful as Pirates was for Disney, 'cause their live-action studios could use some help.

If you've played the video games, never removes his helmet and fans seem to enjoy it.

That's the difference between a game and a film. You don't play it, you watch it. To become invested in the characters you need to get to know them, feel for them. I don't feel for someone wearing a motorcycle helmet shooting a gun. If the movie succeeds then it has to broaden its appeal beyond gamers...
