    November 8, 2007

    Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer have made an offer to Mike Newell to direct "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time," a live-action feature based on the videogame.

    Newell, who last ventured into franchise fare with "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," met execs at the studio to discuss the project this week, and negotiations are expected to begin shortly.

    The vidgame has spawned six installments and several spinoffs, prompting studio hopes that the project will have tentpole potential.

    "Prince of Persia" has a script by Jeffrey Nachmanoff ("The Day After Tomorrow") and vidgame creator Jordan Mechner.Disney, whose topper, Oren Aviv, will put as many as seven films in production between now and March, recently decided not to race to get "Prince of Persia" into production until labor issues are resolved.

    Newell most recently helmed "Love in the Time of Cholera."

    sounds cool! GoF was great, and Prince of Persia looks like it was a good game. This could be very visually stunning. Day After Tomorrow writer though? Hope he's gotten a little less cheesy.

      The original story for 'Day After Tomorrow' was written by the film's director, producer and co-screenwriter Roland Emmerich of 'Independence Day' fame. Jeffrey Nachmanoff was only his co-screenwriter of credit. And he's probably walking a picket line right now.
