Prince of Persia: Sands of Time remains one of our favorite games from the last generation, and after multiple subsequent installments in the popular and critically acclaimed franchise, it's no surprise to learn that Hollywood is stepping in. Yep, here's another chance for the movie-makers to turn a great game into a crappy film. 'sigh'

But perhaps this one has potential, and we should be hearing more about it very soon. According to MTV and Joystiq, a poster for the "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" movie can be found in Times Square in Jerry Bruckheimer's upcoming film, "Confessions of a Shopaholic." No, we're not telling you to go see the latter just to catch a glimpse of the poster, but just so you know, it is there: it features Jake Gyllenhaal in full Prince costume, too. But while it makes sense to see an ad for another Bruckheimer movie in there; "Prince" isn't scheduled to hit theaters until 2010. For our part, considering they're focusing specifically on Sands of Time , we'd like to think their job is easier…and also, we're going to need someone to play Farah. Farah was the Prince's partner throughout most of the game, and of course, Hollywood would never pass on the chance to feature a hot actress in order to better appeal to their target demographic. But who might it be? Someone who could pass for Farah's ethnicity and style…we're thinkin' may be Eva Mendes. What do you think?

Anyway, we'll keep an eye on the movie's progression and hopefully, it will turn out to be a decent action flick. We keep believing Hollywood might finally step things up and deliver a movie that's on par with the game's excellence, but it hasn't happened yet. So just keep those fingers crossed.

yea lol, ill see the movie cus i like the game… but i have actually seen some footage behind the scenes stuff on like ET why i was watching that i dont know but it looks decent so far and i think they already cast a female character and it was not Eva Mendes… damn. but then again it did not mention that, that character was Farah either although she was in most the shots i seen with Jake (our Prince… u may shoot me also!)…

Hollywood should do something completely outside of their mindset and cast a hot Persian chick. Anyone see the 13th Warrior? Antonio Banderas as an Arab, sheesh.

Walt Disney?

I just can't see the character running along the walls like how the Prince does in the game, it just would look daft to me. CGI would make sense but I say that about all movies that are from games

I just know Hollywood is going to mess up big time somewhere… I'm not sure if I should risk the possible (perhaps probable) disappointment that will come from it.

Ya know at first I didn't think Jake G was good for the part but I have faith he might actually pull it off. Or the movie will be ridiculous. This year promises awful films.

sands of time was one of my favorite games. I hope they don't mess it up.
and I hope the soundtrack for the movie is as good as the game's soundtrack.

I read the book (confessions of a shopaholic) good book hopefully the movie will be just as good. I just find it weird that they chose Jake Gyllenhal for the prince of persia role? but i've seen clips from entertainment tonight like behind the scenes maybe it'll be good, jerry bruckhimer is directing it so i can see it being a good movie, never played the games just watched my husbands bestfriend play them and they look like a great series.
