Prince of Persia Shooting in Morocco and England March 10th, 2008

Vari­ety have some impor­tant and sig­nif­i­cant news for us about the Prince of Per­sia movie adap­ta­tion. It seems that direc­tor Mike Newell has been scout­ing loca­tions in Morocco, with stu­dio work tak­ing place at Pinewood, Eng­land. With shoot­ing set to start in mid-June.

Choice of Morocco as a shoot­ing loca­tion will be a boost for the North African country’s film biz.


“Pro­duc­ers are always look­ing for cheap places to shoot and Morocco is one of them,” said Dune Films’ Jimmy Abounouom, who is rep­ping the Moroc­can shoot for Disney.

Dune execs pre­vi­ously han­dled the Moroc­can shoots of Tom Hanks star­rer “Char­lie Wilson’s War” and Kim­berly Peirce’s “Stop-Loss.”

“Prince of Per­sia” will also lens in Blighty’s Pinewood Shep­per­ton stu­dios. Project is in pre-production. Abounouom told Vari­ety he expects the Moroc­can sec­tion of the shoot to start in mid-June, labor wran­gles notwithstanding.
