When you agree to be the Prince of Persia you better be trained up. If my memory of the original game serves me well, Jake Gyllenhaal is going to need some skills including: long jump, spike detection, horseback riding, wall clambing and swordplay. To name a few. Prepping for the role on set, good buddy 'Christopher M' has sent over some of the latest set pics from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

So what are we learning today? It looks like this Prince (Gyllenhaal) will have to know how to wield a sword while riding horseback.

Hope Jake doesn't get too attached to that riding hat.
