Prince of Persia Update

prince of persia: the sands of timeSo I'm not too sure what to make of this. Jake Gyllenhaal (of the Brokeback Mountain fame) along with Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace) is set to play the lead parts (Prince and Princess respectively) in the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time movie.

Gyllenhaal - I so don't know how to pronounce his name - will play Dastan, a 6th-century Persian prince. He has to join forces with the feisty Princess Tamina (Arterton) in order to save the world from an evil nobleman who is out to get his hands on the Sands of Time. The Sands of Time is kinda like a time machine: it allows the wielder to reverse time and in effect, he can rule the world.

Or something to that effect.

I've never really played the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time game, so I don't know how the game's storyline goes. But I've heard that the movie's plot was kinda changed a bit, names included. Can anyone confirm this?

The movie's set to be released by next summer, June 19, 2009.
