First Look: Ben Kingsley as Nizam in Disney's Prince of Persia
Disney is really going all out with Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time this week. Ironically, though, they're not showing anything at Comic-Con (or is it just a secret?). ComingSoon has debuted the first photo of Ben Kingsley as the "villainous nobleman" Nizam from the movie. Earlier today the first two teaser posters for the movie were also unveiled (check those out here) and I have a feeling we might see a lot more from this sometime very soon. Maybe even a trailer this weekend in front of G-Force? I mean, that is a Jerry Bruckheimer movie, and so is this, it would make sense. With that said, take a look at this photo of Kingsley.
His character is a bit different than the villain from the game, or so I gather. However, he has the same goal (to acquire the Sands of Time) and eventually ends up one-on-one with the Prince. In the fantasy adventure based on Ubisoft's video game, Jake Gyllenhaal will play Dastan, a young prince in sixth century Persia who must join forces with Tamina (Gemma Arterton), a feisty and exotic princess, to prevent an evil nobleman (Kingsley) from possessing the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world. Alfred Molina and Toby Kebbell co-star in the Mike Newell-directed film.
