Sunnyweather, I kind of agree with you. I'm not so sure how I feel about this yet, and I'm actually quite shocked he agreed to do it. The only reason I'm a bit confused about him playing the Prince, is because didn't he just say like a few months ago that he was no longer interested in playing superhero roles, and would rather play a normal guy who was heroic? Unless I'm imagining this, he just said he wasn't interested in playing big action hero roles, and thats exactly what the Prince is. So I'm a little confused I wonder if Reese encouraged him to do this role? Or maybe he's doing it because of Ava and Deacon. That was the main reason why Johnny Depp loved playing Jack Sparrow, because his kiddies loved it, so maybe Jake is doing it for them since they love Disney so much. Or maybe it's because of the huge paycheck. Sorry, speculation.

Anyway, it's just not my cup of tea. If it goes well it will boost his career for sure, but I'd just rather see Jake in the small budget Brokeback Mountain and Good Girl type movies, than a big blockbuster, because it could waste his talent. But at the same time, I just need to have more faith in him, and maybe it will really surprise me and he'll be great, as well as the script. So I'll shut up now

Oh but I do have to say, I'm a fan of the costume And if hes excited about this role, then Im happy for him, and congrats Jake! Its about him anyway, not me

Jake was attached to some of the "superhero" movies - for example "Spiderman" and even "The Dark Knight" and to me it was obvious that he and his people were waiting for chance like this one. I cannot remember Jake having said that he is not interested anymore in doing superhero movie? Perhaps someone has a link?

I also prefer Jake doing smaller films like "Brothers" or "Nailed" (if finished!) but being successful in a huge blockbuster brings money and possibilities. Look at Johnny Depp and Robert Downey jr - they dont have to wait for interesting offers anymore, they will be able to chose what they want to do.

Bruckheimer/Disney are claiming that they dont want to make a typical video game adaption but an adventure movie. I have faith enough in Jake to believe that the script is not too shallow and the dialogues are not too silly...

I hope that is not equal to the Tomb Raider!

Producers love talking about this, but only when we learn debut!

Several million miles beyond excited about this - it's not my type of film, but I'm stoked to see Jake finally get a possible franchise movie - should propel him right up to A++++ list, but mainly because it means Jake will be in London this summer for an extended period of time

This film and franchise works, not only will it introduce a lot of people to Jake but it will leave him free to do the lower budget, independent stuff - his name will be enought to get backing - Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Robert Downey Jnr have all done the same thing - massive, big budget blockbusters, whilst still retaining their acting integrity and doing the more 'meaningful' stuff.

This, potentially, is an increadibly smart move by Jake.


I agree it's a smart move, but only if it works! I've had mixed emotions about this project since it was first rumored. If it flops, it will be an embarrassment to Jake, and if he's locked into a contract for two more pictures and Disney wants to make them, the agony is merely prolonged. And he'd be too tied up to make any other films, indie or otherwise.

If it's a success, it's liable to box him in. Frankly, although I don't know the game or the character, this film or film series doesn't sound as if it will demand much of what Jake is superb at: penetrating characterization that shows the human heart in all its complexity. Matt Damon is the luckiest guy in the world, because the Bourne franchise is so good, and it gives him a chance to show his acting chops in the portrayal of a very intriguing man. I'd been looking forward to the Joe Namath movie. Jake is perfect for that part, which has a variety of aspects, and I'm happy to drool nonstop at the sight of Jakey being athletic.

I sometimes wonder whether Jake will ever surpass what he did in BBM. It stands to reason that he would, but nothing else he's done so far has had the depth or emotional range, the sheer ability to break your heart, as that film.

I really don't know what to make of Jake taking this role. It seems very Orlando Bloom if you know what I mean. The whole hero thing really doesn't do it for me. I understand that he will get a wider audience etc but the film sounds a bit sell out, ya know, like film producers are running out of ideas so yet again they look at a video game to make into a huge brand. Let's hope it's not as shallow as it appears!

If this Prince of Persia thing is as good as, say, the Indiana Jones and Pirates of the Caribbean franchises, then Jake will be a super megastar with a career lasting as long as he wants it to.

One thought that occurred to me after my previous post was that Jake may have been influenced to make this Disney deal because of the money--not for himself, because he likely has plenty of it already, but to even the balance with Reese's income and stature. She's the highest-earning female star in Hollywood, and I think right now she has more money than Jake. With the Prince of Persia, he'll be equal to her in financial resources. Believe me, things like this matter in a relationship/marriage, even when you think they don't.

It all kind of makes me melancholy. I feel as if I am now saying goodbye to the Jake who first captivated me: young, eager, fresh, bursting with talent, working hard to rise in his profession, down-to-earth. Once he's a superstar, we won't be seeing him casually out and about. He'll be guarding himself against the paps and the public. Hints of this are already appearing, as he shields himself from picture-takers when he's with Reese. Check out the most recent file in the gallery, where he and Reese are deliberately covering their faces with their shopping bags.

Jake will be fantastic as the Prince. He's got all the ingredients to cook up a feast of treats in this blockbuster . I can't wait . He deserves to do any type of movie he feels that is within him and what I admire most is that he's willing to try and make it fit and also may give it his best. Also hopefully he'll have the financial freedom to produce his own stuff when he's ready. Nice one baby

This will also give me the chance to try out some new PS2 games as I don't really like gaming however, I'll watch the kids play PoP and may take them on too. I understand Sands of Time is the first game and two more are available. I hope that they use Jake's images, movements, mannerisms and voice in the next new game they put out

As much as I love Jake, Yuri Lowenthal will ALWAYS be the Prince to me, so we should just leave that to him. <3

I do not think that Jake has accepted because of Reese or Ava and Deacon.
I think he has accepted for believing in the project and for having liked the script.
I do not like the idea of the film, but I can not say that is bad.

This reminded me of Heath ledger. Never imagined he interpreting the Joker.
It was a risk he accepted, because if his interpretation were bad, could have shaken his career.
But he believed and devoted himself.
Not enough to have a good script or a director to right. The times also depends on the actor.

I believe that Jake will do an excellent job. And I hope that the script and direction are also excellent.

As the photos in which he puts the bag on the face, seemed more a game of it with the pap's. The same he made to put the jacket in 2006, in New York.

Excuse my English.

^^^^FIRST Monicabbm i agree With you 100%...plus there are pics of jake THIS year hitting a paps camera! then said sorry! also maybe they were playing Peeek-a-BOO with the paps! plus arnt we all been saying we feel bad for jake on getting peace? well maybe he is finally figuring out HOW to piss them off!
or maybe they had a bad hair day and didn't want to be filmed?.... again relationships and married life isn't about competing who make the most! 9 years of knowing this and 3 years this SEPTEMBER of married lovely life...with no money matching What-so- ever!....and i sure dont live in squallier!

Zoe...I agree with you 100%. I haven't had a job outside of the home since I got married in 1984. Even if I did I would not be able to make more than $10/hr. My husband makes very good $$, and works several jobs (most at home).

Im sure Evie has her ways of living and i respect the opinions of Others i try to stretch that and live up to it! However i am sorry i cant agree on certain issues what makes a relationship work...for it works in different ways, if it dont then it dont!
But playing the "match this" game is not how it works! all that matters are that someone needs to be a provider...and as i remember Jake and Reese are not married!' so.....i guess his choices in life is HIS business!

as i see how Jake is, i dont see him being the type of guy who has an ego were he needs to feel a paycheck makes a relationship work. He has said he chooses movies for reason! we haven't read the script , maybe he saw something we haven't yet!...He is not picking movies to impress his bank account to his new fling!

Well I found a script review, seems pretty legit. And fortunately it sounds like they're sticking pretty close to the game so far.
