Prince of Persia Starts Shooting In June
— Posted by John Campea
All video game movies suck. Don’t shoot me for saying it… it’s just the way it is. There are however 2 franchises that I’ve always thought stood a CHANCE at making decent films… Warcraft, because the world, mythology and backgrounds are so huge that a good writer with a free hand could make something pretty special out of it, and Prince of Persia.
It was announced sometime ago that mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean) was interested in producing a new series of films and got the rights to Prince of Persia. Well… it looks like things are moving ahead full steam. They’ve gota director on board, and they’re aiming to start shooting in June! Collider has this:
So barring an Actors strike, looks like things should get rolling soon, and are probably already in pre-production. With Bruckheimer involved you know the scale of the film is going to be HUGE and that he’s looking at this as a franchise instead of just a single film. Could this be the game film that breaks the streak of wretched video game movies to date? All we can do is cross our fingers.
