When Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Productions unite to create a movie, the result is bound to be epic, magical, and full of adventure. In "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal ("Brokeback Mountain, Rendition, Zodiac, Jarhead, Donnie Darko") stars as a young prince who must prove his innocence with the reluctant help of a conquered princess. As he searches for a dangerous artifact that has the potential to prevent the unleashing of an Earth-destroying sandstorm, he faces deceit, betrayal, and treacherous, black-cloaked Hassasins. This beautifully designed narrative will describe in detail every aspect of the movie-making process, from casting to costumes to computer graphics. Author Michael Singer takes readers on an extraordinary journey, recounting the links in the Prince of Persia chain-from the wildly popular video game to the film project, spearheaded by one of the world's most successful producers, Jerry Bruckheimer. A veritable oasis of exclusive photos and insider information, the book includes information on the production, makeup, location filming, stunts, and special effects, as well as profiles of the films' incredible stars!
