Jake as Prince of Persia??

The movie's release date may have been pushed back to 2010, but that hasn't prevented Jake Gyllenhaal from getting into enviable physical shape for the production of PRINCE OF PERSIA, currently shooting in Morocco.

Mike Newell (HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, DONNIE BRASCO) is directing the flick, based on the popular videogame series. I haven't played any of the games since the original side-scroller, which resulted in many plunges into spiked pits, but I assume the movie will have plenty of daring leaps, sword fights, mystical happenings, and sand.

Is it me or does Jake look a bit more scruffy barbarian than Persian royalty?
