Jake Gyllenhaal’s upcoming bronzeface spectacular — that’s Disney’s adaption of Prince of Persia, though the same tag could probably also be applied to David O. Russell’s Nailed, given all the southern sun the cast has been able to enjoy while the picture is shut down — just got an injection of classic adventure. Alfred Molina has joined the cast as Sheik Amar, mentor to Gyllenhaal’s prince. [per Variety.]
You should be ecstatic to see Jerry Bruckheimer and Mike Newell aren’t letting culture or nationality stand in their way when putting this flick together. What better way is there to honor the memory of Charlton Heston than to make an entire film as homage to Ramon Miguel Vargas?
