Jake Gyllenhaal Talks Prince of Persia Movie Role

Best Gaming Reboots Prince of Persia

Spider-Man: Far From Home is available in theaters now, which means promotion for the final MCU Phase 3 film is in full swing. In addition to celebrating by downloading two new suits in PS4's Spider-Man, comic book and gaming fans can also watch tons of interviews with the movie's stars. In one recent interview, Far From Home's Jake Gyllenhaal reflected on one his older blockbusters: Prince of Persia.

The Prince of Persia film adaptation released back in 2010 and, at the time, Disney had high hopes that it would follow in Pirates of the Caribbean's footsteps to become another sprawling and financially successful franchise. The movie did end up turning a profit, but not even Gyllenhaal's star power was enough to help it break the video game curse.

Gyllenhaal was reflecting on the Prince of Persia role during an interview in Yahoo Studio and talked about about how the movie helped influence his future choice of projects...

"I think I learned a lot from that movie in that I spend a lot of time trying to be very thoughtful about the roles that I pick and why I'm picking them... And you're bound to slip up and be like, 'That wasn't right for me,' or 'That didn't fit perfectly.' There have been a number of roles like that. And then a number of roles that do."


As expected, it sounds a bit like the movie's lack of critical success led the actor to be a bit more deliberate about the roles he would take on in the future. Luckily for Gyllenhaal, that has helped lead him to a career full of incredibly successful projects.

Although the Prince of Persia franchise likely isn't inspiring any more movies in the near future, rumors have once again cropped up about a new game in the franchise, so fans can keep their fingers crossed for that opportunity to return to this world.
