The big news hit today from Deadline that the little vixen with the big mouth, Megan Fox, has been passed up in Transformers 3. Paramount had decided not to use the sassy young starlet and Michael Bay had the final say. Other sources from Variety and People have as well confirmed this story. With that being said and the ominous approaching shooting start for Transformers 3, there have already been discussions on a new love interest for leading man Shia LaBeouf.
Disney has finally debuted the first trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, based on the video game of the same name, on MySpace. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Prince Dastan alongside of Gemma Arterton as Tamina, Alfred Molina (who we get a brief glimpse of in the trailer), Ben Kingsley, and Toby Kebbell. This looks actually pretty interesting for a videogame movie. Pretty epic I might say. It is gonna be a big popcorn summer flick and should be up against some stiff competition with Iron Man 2 next summer as well. Check out the trailer:
Note: the embedding might be disabled here and there so bare with me as I keep updating the video if it gets disabled.
These two movie posters have appeared all over the new for this new movie, which doesn’t even come out until next Summer. You can click on the images to enlarge them. They look pretty artsy for a movie poster, but hey that’s cool, whatever works……
EmpireOnline: “Based on the very popular series of videogames, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time stars Jake Gyllenhaal as the ‘rogue prince’ Dastan and Gemma Arterton as the ‘mysterious princess’ Tamina (both seen above), who reluctantly team up to safeguard an ancient dagger that could release the Sands of Time, allowing its possessor to reverse time and rule the world. Mike Newell, of Donnie Brasco, Pushing Tin, Mona Lisa Smile, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire previously, is directing the movie. Jordan Mechner, one of the creators of the video game, has been working closely on the script and development of this as well.”
