The DNEG Team

Film Background

Walt Disney Pictures and Jerrry Bruckheimer Films (Pirates of the Caribbean) have joined forces again to bring us Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire), this epic adventure story is set in Persia and follows the fortunes of a rogue prince (Jake Gyllenhaal) who joins forces with a mysterious princess (Gemma Arterton). Together they must race against time to defeat dark forces and protect an ancient dagger that is capable of releasing the Sands of Time; a gift from the gods that allows whoever possesses it to turn back time and rule the world.
