prince of persia1 First Pic Of Jake Gyllenhaal From Prince Of PersiaWe’ve got the first pic from the upcoming Prince of Persia movie, with star Jake Gyllenhaal trying his best to look the part of titular Prince Dastan. (What, they couldn’t find a Persian actor to play the part?)

I bet right about now Naveen Andrews is feeling pretty slighted.

Anyway, Prince of Persia is based on the popular video game about a young prince (Gyllenhaal) who is tricked by an evil wizard (Ben Kingsley) into unleashing the evil sands of time. The film is being directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and is currently slated for a May 28, 2010 release.

Take a look at the pic and let us know what you think about Gyllenhaal as the Prince of Persia. (Ladies, try not to get too giddy. Fellas, you either.)

  1. yeah you’re right there Sam,every actor has stunt back up but the only thing that I’m worried about is the fact that Disney’s making this film and Disney is not known for promoting intense violence cause I can’t think of one film made by Disney that is violent and the way prince fights is kinda like a demon,I mean I’m sure everything is not always neat and tightly but he fights with alot of heart and HE CAN’T BE STOPPED FOR CRAP!!! and they better fix the names for the story and make this film right or I’m coming for Jake and I’ll show that little punk who’s THE REAL PRINCE OF PERSIA, I AM

  2. hey Sam one more thing if they really want to do the story right they should pay attention to every detail of the game while playing it or watch it on you tube so they can get the script right,fix up Jake’s face a little and his body alot and do the training as I listed before and get me to do the moves and get the real guy who played his voice to put it into the movie, I’m mean common they got the hi tech these days to do it right? or they should use the guy who did the same voice in the game but make it some animated and real like Beowulf that would be easier and cool right?

  3. Well animated moives normally take way longer, but with some studios it can go just as fast a real life moives. But it’s clear that the bottom line is we will just have to make our own moive. Or remake the moive if and when this disnsney one flops.

  4. sounds good,I would like to make this movie with you cause I bet we can pull off the Prince’s stunts better than that slacker Jake can, but anyway are you capable of doing a horizontal wall run and getting at least three steps across a wall? or doing any of his moves? but anyway why don’t you send me a message on my email it’s: ok but if I don’t respond it means I can’t get on the site cause I’m using the school’s pc ok man

  5. hey Sam, forget about emailing me ok cause I can’t check it here at Vo Tech ok, but when you get the chance get back at me alright

  6. Hey Tony, it would be awsome to make our own film. i’ve made plenty of my own little movies. Nothing big, just small film with friends and family and i want to become a director and show these idiots how to make a moive. But i shouldn’t really talk yet, cause i havn’t put out anything really decent.
    I can pull off the wall run, and i have had plenty of weapons training. so i could, but i like being behind the camera if possible. As soon as i get enough money to make any movie i’ll let you know and we can somehow work it out.

  7. Oh and here is my youtube account. I just loaded some small films where i was trying different filming looks and shots. I had comedy contest moive in there too. i know they moslty suck, but let me know what you think. Soon my cousin and i hope to put out a full moive with the animation stuff i’ve leanred. Going to be us killing a ton of zombies.

  8. I’ll view it whenever I get the chance ok,but um,how many steps can you get when you horizontally wall run?

  9. Oh i can do a least four for sure, and the virtical wall runs too. why? didn’t you want to be the prince?

  10. i think is good but just one think the prince is not europ or american pop he is arabic and persian i think the actor not look like realy one of the lot of prince of arabic world it s like if u want to do movie about Mohammed ali and u put actor tom cruz is not possible

  11. hiiiiiiiiii i wanna just say that i saw jake many times here in my town while he was here for the same film in ouarzazate and i ahd the chance to take a picture of him from behind because he was very quick.but he was very handsome and beautiful too.

  12. Hajar, who cares if he’s “beautiful” he doesn’t fit the part of the prince. pluse i think he’s a fruit-cake.

  13. wait, i know he’s a fruit-cake lol

  14. LMAO, Hey Sam I agree with you about Jake,and yes I want to be the prince more than anything in the world,and believe me I could pull it off 50 times better than he could

  15. I just want to say hi to Hajar,cause you sound really cute and i hope your Persian too honey,and I hope that you respond to me or get back to me

  16. They should have used Oded Fehr from the Mummy 1 & 2.

  17. I think this could work. Sure he looks like the Warrior Within version, but I’m pretty sure Disney can work with that.
    And the whole issue about the name Dastan is that the director simply had to name the character, for the film’s sake. It would have sounded strange if everyone in the film referred to him as “The Prince.” ‘Dastan’ apparently means ‘trickster’ in persian, according to another site I read about this film. People should try and read around subjects before slanting them on forums.
    And about the running on walls stuff, have you ever seen ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’? You think those actors actually ran across frikkin trees? No, they probably used harnesses and ropes, which get edited out. So Jake or his stunt doubles will probably be able to do the acrobatics, with some CGI to ramp up the final version.
    Looking forward to its release, I hope Jake will do the Prince justice.
    Oh, and about the boots, in my opinion they’re awesome! Trying to find a pair similar for myself. Try freerunning in sandals people, if your not hurting or losing a shoe mid walljump, I’ll be impressed.

  18. man…hes killin me, i could eat those persian muscles

  19. buff up again huh jake. easy on the steroids. lol. it would have been funny if they casted Will Smith and called it “The Fresh Prince of Persia”.

  20. he’s not dirty and yummy looking enuf to be prince of persia :/ but its done….we’ll just have to wait if this turns out ok
