I’ve been trying to avoid posting anything about this one, due to zero interest or optimism. Every on-set pic of Jake Gyllenhaal walking around shirtless and Jerry Bruckheimer quote of superficial, useless value (to the effect of “[Gyllenhaal] is perfect for the role because he’s in terrific shape.”) pushed The Prince of Persia deeper into my mind’s black hole. Bruckheimer’s video-game-to-film production comes out next Summer, and I’m almost positive that it’ll suck. But, alas, for the sake of covering a wide spectrum of cinematic happenings, here’s some footage that debuted on some ABC movie special recently. Enjoy, or not (after the jump):
There is one minor reason to positively anticipate The Prince of Persia, though.....
Those who've seen Quantum of Solace will recall that face, before it and the magnificent frame its attached to were covered in that killer oil and left draped off the side of that bed. Or, if you've seen Rock N Rolla, she was the bombshell assistant to Jeremy Piven and Ludacris.
