disney's prince?Murmurs of a Jerry Bruckheimer produced Prince of Persia film have resurfaced, buzzing about Bruckheimer and Disney working to mold Ubisoft's game franchise into a successor to the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy; set to conclude in May. One source even speculates that the Prince could hit the big screen as early as summer 2008.

When Bruckheimer and company first seized the Prince of Persia film rights in 2004, the goal was to adapt elements of the game world, rather than directly translate 2003's The Sands of Time. It's unclear if that direction has since changed, as the game series has evolved into a port-able trilogy.
