No, Sir Ben Kingsley is not playing Max Von Sydow in Savior of the Universe: The Making of Flash Gordon*. He’s playing the baddie in Prince of Persia, where he’ll tackle a highly bronzed Jake Gyllenhaal.
Ben is going to be trying to get his hands on the Sands of Time, and I guess Jake is going to try and stop him. You can see the full picture (which includes his really big belt buckle) at Defamer.
*but seriously, who wouldn’t pay to see that behind the scenes movie?
