"Prince of Persia", shot in 2-D

"Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" (2010), Jake Gyllenhaal - Dastan Action Figure (McFarlane Toys).

"Contrary to what has been suggested in a poster promoting upcoming Disney Digital 3-D releases at Disney's D23 fan convention, "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" won't be screened in 3-D. Walt Disney Pictures came up with the clarification. The mouse house stated the display at the convention is inaccurate and the representative at the expo must have been misinformed.

Coming Soon previously reported on the possibility of the videogame adaptation getting a 3-D screening by pointing out on the poster it came across on the floor of D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. At the time, the site confirmed representatives on the site claimed that "while the film was shot in 2-D, a post process will be applied to allow for 3-D presentations".Jerry Bruckheimer said, "It's a videogame. But you don't have to be a fan of video games to love this movie. It's got romance and adventure; a dagger that can control time. I'm very excited."

UPDATE: We just received an e-mail from a Disney representative who says the Prince of Persia is NOT going to be released as a 3-D feature. It seems strange that the poster image was included on another poster with all the other Disney 3-D releases though. We're trying to find out if there's anymore to this story, so we'll keep you posted as it develops!
