Jake interview and first video footage November 19th, 2008

ET Online have posted a video inter­view with Jake Gyl­len­haal, show­ing quick snip­pets of action, Jake hav­ing some fun and Jerry Bruck­heimer. It’s pretty laid back, and, as media movie scoops tend to go, this one is pretty good.

Note the quick pan­ning shots of Morocco, the two sworded action scenes.

Pic­tures from the video

Thanks Mal!

Why did they made him even look like Prince from War­rior Within and Two Thrones…??

@ Uchiha Itachi: Because they were going for a look that every­one knows and remem­ber most peo­ple for­got what he looked like in SoT

They expect to be a tril­ogy. They prob­a­bly choose this clothes because are the clothes that Kick­ass!!! whith the two swords !!!!

I really liked this footage and to see Jake as the Prince.
He was a good choice for act­ing. Look­ing sim­i­lar to him and also a great actor.
Bruck­heimer usu­ally makes his pro­duc­tions very styl­ished. Let’s see what’s gonna hap­pen with POP.

well, did you peo­ple know that Jerry Bruck­heimer is 63 years old? I did found that out on one web­site there are lists of any movie you want to find and infor­ma­tion about almost every actors and actress.

Please don’t kill the Prince Dis­ney + Jake!!!!

@ K-Mart: Who the hell could for­get what the Prince looked like in SoT? That’s is an incred­i­bly lame rea­son to change his appear­ance for the movie *disgust*

I really hope he got buffed for the movie,because it would be a shame otherwise.He seems really awesome,a great guy,a sense of humour,with the prince’s dash­ing looks.I have a good feel­ing about the movie,hope its great! ;)
(,games are awesome)

pff. Dis­a­pointed… Jake doesen‘t looks like an ara­bian, what­ever you‘ll do to him„,he‘s too soft for the role.
Fol­low Mel Gibson‘s great ideea: if u make a movie with\about the mayas, use them in the cast, or atleast some­one who has the looks.

Per­sians are not Arab.
And yeah, he doesn’t look Per­sian at all.

But then again, did any­one stop to notice that most actors in Hol­ly­wood are white? Just sayin’.

[…] Inter­vista al Principe di Per­sia di Dis­ney. Dopo le immag­ini rubate sul set dello spin-off della cele­bre saga vide­olu­dica, nei mesi scorsi ha fatto la sua com­parsa on-line il primo dietro le quinte inclu­sivo di inter­vista a Jake Gyl­len­haal, poco con­vin­cente attore pro­tag­o­nista del film in arrivo per il 2010. Con­tinuo a ripetere che se Hol­ly­wood sbaglia col Principe qualche testa salta, e non solo metafori­ca­mente Jake inter­view and first video footage. […]

[…] Inter­view with Disney’s Prince of Per­sia. After the shots stolen on the set from the spin-off of the well-known videogame saga, in the last months appeared on-line the first behind the scenes includ­ing an inter­view with Jake Gyl­len­haal, the not so much con­vinc­ing star of the movie com­ing in 2010. I con­tinue to repeat that if Hol­ly­wood makes a mis­take with the Prince there will be some head cut off, and not only metaphor­i­cally Jake inter­view and first video footage. […]
