A rumour got out last night that Orlando Bloom had taken the lead role in the upcoiming Prince of Persia movie, but it’s already been scotched by ComingSoon.net.
Walt Disney Pictures [said] that there is no truth to these rumors,” said the site. “What we do know so far is that Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) is expected to start shooting Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time soon at Pinewood Studios in the UK and in Morocco as well. Jerry Bruckheimer instead is producing the film, which the studio is targeting for a June 19, 2009 release.”
So that’s that.
