Jake Gyllenhaal has become one of Hollywood's brightest young stars, taking on challenging dramatic roles, and even gaining an Oscar nomination for his turn in 'Brokeback Mountain' -- all before the age of 30. However, his latest project may be his most surprising: summer-movie action star. Gyllenhaal will star in 'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time' -- opening May 28 -- as an agile, sword-swinging adventurer with a beautiful princess by his side.
Legendary Hollywood producer Jerry Bruckheimer brought 'Prince of Persia' from a long-running video game series to the big screen. 'Persia' tells the story of street-wise Prince Dastan, who must stop the evil Nizam from using a mystical dagger that controls all of time. Gyllenhaal's Dastan must fight off Nizam's dark forces and protect history from being erased forever.
