Super-producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean, National Treasure, Rafferty and the Gold Dust Twins) attracts big Hollywood movies like honey attracts flies, and among his many projects, the man is working on a screen version of video game Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.
Website latinoreview.com spoke with The Bruck and got the lowdown on this flick: We can expect parkour, Bruckheimer is taking a "wait and see" approach to sequel, and there's a reason Prince of Persia fans might want to check out Confessions of a Shopaholic, the Bruckheimer produced chick flick coming out February 13th!
Read it yourself, under the cut!
Is this the future of advertising, this 'in movie advertising', seeing the 'Prince of Persia' and 'G-Force' ads CGI'd into Confessions of a Shopaholic? Is that a first?
Bruckheimer: I don't know. It's funny because I was watching the movie and we had ads for other films and I said, 'Why don't we put our own movies in here.' It's kind of silly to promote someone else's movies.
Was that done in the late stage of the film?
Bruckheimer: Yes. It was done two weeks ago.
How big is 'Prince of Persia' going to be?
Bruckheimer: As far as the scope of it, it's enormous. It's a big romantic adventure.
It's based on the 'Sands of Time' game, the one that came out a few years ago?
And nothing on the current one that's out?
Bruckheimer: No. Well, I mean, I shouldn't say no. I haven't played the current one. I heard that it got really good reviews.
Will there be a lot of stunts and action scenes that people haven't seen before? Is it more Parkour, like with the Prince?
Bruckheimer: There's Parkour, yeah.
A lot of action then. Is this a future franchise, a new 'Pirates'?
Bruckheimer: You never know. If you'd have asked me this question before, before the first 'Pirates' came out I would've said that you were nuts and that we just hoped to get this one sold. You don't know.
