According to iesb.net, The Prince Of Persia movie is going to be directed by........ Michael Bay. The article can be found here.
IESB Exclusive: Prince of Persia Finds A Director!Written by Robert Sanchez Friday, 13 April 2007Jerry Bruckheimer has been busy as of late with his Pirates franchise and his countless hit TV shows but still he has been working hard to get other film franchises off the ground. The IESB can exclusively report that his upcoming film, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, has found a director and a release date!ImageSo I am sure you are wondering by now who Jerry has tapped to direct the adaptation of the best selling video game, right?Bruckheimer has teamed up with him in the past to bring you Bad Boys I and II, The Rock, Pearl Harbor and Armageddon. Yes, that’s right, Michael Bay is directing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time for a Summer ’09 release.The IESB was able to confirm with Disney Studios that they are hopeful that Michael Bay will indeed direct the picture right after he is done with this Summer’s blockbuster, Transformers.You might remember a couple of years ago when we confirmed that Bay was behind Transformers just as he was finishing The Island. So now, just as he is finishing up Transformers, we are announcing that he will in fact be behind Bruckheimer’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.This feature film adaptation is “based on the video game, which follows an adventurous prince who teams up with a rival princess to stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world.”The original creator of the game, Jordan Mechner, has said that "Rather than do a straight beat-for-beat adaptation of the new videogame, we're taking some cool elements from the game and using them to craft a new story - much as 'Pirates' [of the Caribbean] did with the theme park ride."Mechner wrote the first draft of the screenplay for the feature film with subsequent drafts by Jeffrey Nachmanoff.Originally developed and published Ubisoft, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a third person action adventure video game that received widespread critical acclaim.The Sands of Time is the first of a trilogy. Released in 2003, it was followed by Warrior Within in 2004 and The Two Thrones in 2005.It appears that gone are days of Uwe Boll and crappy video game adaptations (well almost, there is still In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale to deal with unfortunately). There is almost a Renaissance feeling in the air with video game adaptations garnering more respect as well as better casting. Hitman is a perfect example with Timothy Olyphant cast in the lead role as Agent 47. Let’s hope things continue in this upward trend!

I really cant vote for confidence just yet. Until Bruckheimer can prove to us, he can actually make a movie work, and not just by its subext, or title alone.That's what has so many TF fans in an uproar (but Spielberg calms the storm)But 09' is quite aways away, so things can change. for better? gotta wait and see.

Good news! According to comingsoon.net The rumors of Orlando Bloom being cast as the Prince were false. Source
A rumor is spreading fast through the internet (we believe it originated at World Entertainment News Network, aka WENN) that Orlando Bloom has landed a $40 million payday to star in a movie trilogy based on the "Prince of Persian" video game. The rumor stated that he had beaten competition from Zac Efron to take the role and even said that Jerry Bruckheimer will direct.Walt Disney Pictures, however, tells ComingSoon.net that there is no truth to these rumors.What we do know so far is that Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) is expected to start shooting Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time soon at Pinewood Studios in the UK and in Morocco as well. Jerry Bruckheimer instead is producing the film, which the studio is targeting for a June 19, 2009 release.

Oh, well mostly anybody would be better then Bay for this film....though, to be honest, I don't really think adapations of the last gen games is really a good idea; their not novels or well established outside the gaming scene so...why just write a new storyline ...why do I even care anymore?

One of my favorite actors just made it worth a watch, not vice versa.
