Jerry Bruckheimer's Prince of Persia
adaptation has picked up two more high-profile actors. Alfred Molina and Ben Kingsley have been cast, according to Variety
. They join the previously announced Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arteron who play Dastan, the 6th-century Persian prince, and Tamina, respectively.
Molina will portray Sheik Amar, who becomes a mentor to Dastan and shows him how to use metallic tentacle arms
to his advantage. Kingsley's role is currently unknown, though /Film
is predicting he'll portray the villain Vizier (that's assuming they retain
any of the PoP
storyline). Although the casting of the prince is complete, we're still hoping actor, swordfighter and actual Persian prince David Zandi
uses his magical time-bending dagger to somehow nab the lead role.
