Kingsley is Persia villain

Jun. 6, 2008by:

We had heard that Ben Kingsley had joined the cast of PRINCE OF PERSIA, but we didn't know who he was playing. Now we know that he'll be the villain of the picture; "Nizam", who plots to kill his brother King Shahrman and blame it on Prince Dastan so he can take the throne. If you know what the hell any of that means, or who any of those dudes are, congratulations: you're right at home here, since you're officially an enormous geek.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton are the hip, sexy leads in the movie and Mike Newell is directing. The film is of course based on the wildly popular Ubisoft videogame of the same name.
Extra Tidbit: Ben Kinglsey was in one my least favorite Sopranos episodes. And in case you want to gauge my opinion on such matters, I thought the finale was a flat out masterpiece.

Im yet to be impressed by this whole thing. So far the whole casting is wrong. Nutin' but love for Sir Kingsley and Gyllenhaal but they are miscast.
Im a big PoP fan and this smells like poo-poo. Like I said...need something concrete to feast my eyes upon...a teaser poster perhaps?? Some decent behind scenes pics maybe?

This is some bullshit. Why are you not casting people of middle eastern decent in this movie. Jake, I love you dude but you are an kidding yourself if you think you can pull of Persian. It takes more than a beard. I'm shaking my head in disbelief. It's like were making a movie in the 1930's.

oh my god

I smell Ultimate Box Office Dud from this movie.. everything about it seems wrong and horrific. Battlefield Earth reborn in my eyes. This will fail.

These are the most whitest Persians I have ever seen.

I think the King's name is the only name from the game. The Prince was simply refered to as "The Prince" and the baddie was simply called "The Vizier"
