    If the follow the storyline of the videogames (which are fairly cinematic), this could make a neat movie, what with the twisting story and time-travel aspects.

    Hopefully, he'll be the droll, sarcastic prince from Sands of Time.

    i totally agree. unfortunately, i fear that the myopic powers-that-be in hollywood may well gravitate more toward the brooding, heavy-metal prince from the subsequent installments.

    Since it's Bruckheimer and Disney, somebody's got to be thinking, "Hey, this could be our next Pirates of the Caribbean." The prince isn't that far removed personality-wise from Jack Sparrow, so we may be okay there.

    More importantly, the (initial at least) film screenplay was written Jordan Mechner who only had a hand in the first game so that tone was probably the starting point they went with.

    I only had the information at hand, but I know of Jordan Mechner. I've been playing his games since I was a small child, starting with Karateka. His involvement is good news.

    I just read at the IMDb that Bay is not confirmed as the director, and that Bruckheimer has said that a director has not been picked. Has anyone heard anything along these lines? Dare I hope? POP is about the best idea for a video game translation I've heard of, but I'll skip it altogether if Bay is given the helm.
