I was on Filmforce.ign.com and found and article about the a possible movie in the works!

Here is the link: http://filmforce.ign....html?fromint=1

or if you just lazy:

Games-to-Film: Prince of Persia
Bruckheimer is bringing Ubisoft's best-selling game to the movies.

March 04, 2004 - Jerry Bruckheimer Films is negotiating for the movie rights to Ubisoft's hit game Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Today's edition of Variety scoops that Bruckheimer is eyeing the property for feature development at Walt Disney Pictures. The deal reportedly includes a script which is being written by the game's creator Jordan Mechner. John August is supervising script development and serving as executive producer on the film.

The original Prince of Persia game was released roughly 15 years ago and Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the 3D sequel, is a multi-platform smash. For those of you not familiar with the game, here's the setup according to IGN Cube:

The game is set in medieval Persia, Earth's mightiest and most mysterious kingdom, where a king and his son defeat the powerful Maharajah and kidnap his daughter, looting his palace of priceless treasure, including an extravagant hourglass, and a mysterious dagger.

What the Prince does not realize, is that these two objects can turn their possessor into an immortal god, and give him control over time itself. Tricked by a dying Vizier bent on harnessing this terrible magic for himself, the Prince releases the sands of time, destroying a kingdom and turning its populace into ferocious demons. Only the Prince, the Vizier, and Princess Farah, the kidnapped daughter of the Maharajah, remain unchanged. Now, it is up to the young Prince of Persia to call upon every resource and ounce of courage he possesses to save his kingdom and redeem his fatal mistake.

For more on the game check out IGN's gaming channels.

Mechner told Variety that he sees the Bruckheimer-produced Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl as a touchstone for the adaptation. "Rather than do a straight beat-for-beat adaptation of the new videogame," he says, "we're taking some cool elements from the game and using them to craft a new story much as Pirates did with the theme park ride."

sort of like tomb raider mixed with scorpion king? wink.gif

i, for one, feel that no video game should be made into a movie... most video games have horrible plots with really obvious twists, and those are the ones chosen to be made into films... resident evil,as an example, had a rediculously stupid plot and the movie they made sucked because of it... and any game that did have a good plot would just feel bastardised as a movie...

of course, thats just my opinion...

Will probably suck like every other videogame-film made to date (or is there any good one? Can't think of any atm). I played the game for the first time today though, and if it holds the same class as the game it'd be fly, but likely not so.

And as I perfectly loathe Bruckheimer (Pearl Harbor and similar shit, yet everything's better than PH should also be stated). Wonder who the director will be? They'll probably throw in Simon West while they're at it, but then it might be a slight success on the otherhand, yet I'm not that keen on the guy.

I actually read there every day as I find they do very unbiased reviews... the news page is actually quite up to date and the letters are somewhat amusing!

Thanks you! I knew someone would remember it. I loved it. It was in the early 90s when it was introduced.

I'm really surprised Pepsi doesn't do small production runs of their old discontinued beverages... Or at the very least licence the rights to produce it to some smaller company that would be thrilled to sell something big ol' Pepsi considers a "flop". So what if Crystal Pepsi and Pepsi Blue didn't put Coke out of business, that's no reason for Pepsi to send them to the chopping block. Sometimes I really wonder what Pepsi is thinking... cussing.gif
