Originally a third-person action-adventure computer game, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will hit the big screens 2010. Mike Newell (The Awakening, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) directs the film and it stars Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko and Brokeback Mountain). That already sounds good to me but added is Ben Kingsley playing the villainous nobleman really makes this movie a must see.
The plot is about a brave man chosen as heir to the throne after proving himself in battle. He then is left to guard the sacred dagger capable of turning back time. Along with a beautiful princess and loyal followers, they work together to find safe haven for the dagger while fighting off those who wish to possess the dagger for their own evil plans. Very exciting.
