According to a Moroccan news source, Mike Newell's Prince of Persia film based on the popular video game series most recently in the hands of Ubisoft will be shooting in location in Morocco. Morocco is most famous for its largest city, Casablanca, the setting for a film of the same name that is doubtlessly 2,000 times than this one could ever hope to be.
I really hope that a good thing comes out of this movie. Usually, video game movies suck (Far Cry to be included), but I have high hopes for a PoP movie.
A possible casting idea for the title role is any mexican actor. Hell, even Antonio Banderas could work.
