We'll have to be on the lookout for the July issue of Empire Magazine:
With Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time now in post-production, Jake Gyllenhaal and Mike Newell took time to give us the low-down on the Bruckheimer sword-and-sandal epic for Empire's soon-to-hit-stores July issue.
As Dastan, Gyllenhaal is charged with battling the shadowy cult of assassins The Hanssansin, a heroic role that the newly-buff leading man claims says him to the role. (ed. huh?)"I'm always fascinated with these kinds of stories of the hero's journey," Gyllenhaal told us. "You're playing a legitimate hero, you know? I think it's an honour to do that."
Newell, meanwhile, says there's much more to Prince Of Persia than Gyllenhaal roaming the sixth century with his top off.
But Newell's promising that his leading man will have the tools to meet all this divine fury blow-for-blow. "There's this wonderful line - and I can't remember where this comes from - which says, 'So long as there is just one man, you can't kill us all...'"
I can't wait to see the finished producet.
Until then, it's good to know the Disney machine is gearing up.
