Hollywood is just hot for those game based movies..today it was announced that Jerry Bruckheimer is interested in adapting Persia: The Sands of Time. The producer of The Rock, Crimson Tide and Beverly Hills Cop among many other hit movies, is currently negotiating a seven-figure deal to get the movie rights. Prince of Persia creator Jordan Mechner will be writing the initial script.
Mechner says Bruckheimer's "Pirates of the Caribbean" was a touchstone for the adaptation. "Rather than do a straight beat-for-beat adaptation of the new videogame, we're taking some cool elements from the game and using them to craft a new story - much as 'Pirates' did with the theme park ride."
