Prince of Persia - Hassansins Featurette

Jake Gyllenhaal featured in US Weekly. Talking about his role in Prince of Persia he's quoted saying: "In a list of fears of the movie, No. 1 would be ostriches, No. 2 would be the accent, No. 3 would be sword fighting".

Prince of Persia - Hassansins Featurette

Walt Disney Pictures sent us another new featurette for the upcoming Disney film “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” by director Mike Newell (The Elfstones of Shannara, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and starring Ben Kingsley (Shutter Island), Jake Gyllenhaal (Zodiac, Brokeback Mountain) and Gemma Arterton (Clash of the Titans, Quantum of Solace).

"I suppose that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but as far as this beholder is concerned Gemma Arterton is perfect for the role of Princess Tamina, the character that evolved from the prince's companion Farah from the Prince of Persia video games. So the fact that anyone would take the time out of their day to write her a letter telling her otherwise boggles my mind.
According to an interview in the May edition of Details magazine, someone did just that.

"I've gotten letters telling me I'm not right for the part because I don't look like the girl in the video game! She really is this sex goddess. They've got massively high standards."
