Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Now here's a casting rumor that I sort of dig. Get Jake Gyllenhaal in front of some spray tanning and he could make a perfect Prince of Persia.
Jake Gyllenhaal Off to Persia?
The good people at LatinoReview have been getting their fair share of exclusives lately, with the latest scoop coming right out of leftfield. While there was some discussion on Orlando Bloom taking the title role in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, it looks like it will be Brokeback Persian.
Disney doesn't have a lead just yet, but it would seem that they have made an offer to none other than Jake Gyllenhaal. I have to agree with Latino, the choice of actor does sound pretty awesome. But a recent injury could hold Gyllenhaal up.
The complication is that I don’t know how much more time Jake is going to need to heal because if you read my script review “HERE”, the role is very physical. Lots of Parkour involved and I don’t know if Disney feels like waiting for Jake to heal his ankle. Then again, they might get Jake one hell of a stunt double so let’s see. After all, Tobey Maguire did Spiderman 2 hurt. If Jake books the role, ya’ll know where you heard it first. I loved the games for over twenty years. Hopefully, the movie will be just as good.
