I don’t know much about the Prince of Persia video game, other than I can’t figure out how to play it on my cell phone. Rope of Silicon says Jake Gyllenhaal is slated to play the titular prince. The movie has the prince pairing with a princess (naturally) to rescue the “Sands of Time” (before a bad guy gets it, I would assume).
This week’s new releases all feature badasses. Christian Bale and Russell Crowe are cowboys in 3:10 to Yuma while Cillian Murphy is part of a space journey to reignite the dying sun in Sunshine. Jake Gyllenhaal plays a writer after a serial killer in Zodiac and Kevin Bacon rounds out the release week as a father out for revenge for his son’s killing in Death Sentence.
