‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’ Interview with Mike Newell and Jordan Mechner

Why did you film in Morocco at a time of the year that everyone advised against going there?

Mike Newell: I'm afraid that is simply how the movies work. If you are going to do a film about the South Pole, the chances are that you will film it in Hawaii! Whatever is most difficult, you will get to do. That is just when everything happened. It was very hot! Some days it was 135 degrees! But it is very dry and so, you lose a lot of weight, which is good. Wet heat is what is exhausting and so I was fine. Also, it must be said, sometimes up in the mountains, we had absolutely torrential rain. Really serious rain, where we had to watch out for water courses getting washed away.

Sir Ben Kingsley Talks ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’

Starring in Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time is almost your first time with Disney - you did previously do Tuck Everlasting. So now that you are part of the Disney family, did you grow up as a child watching Disney movies?

Ben Kingsley: I had to be physically carried out of the room by my parents because I was upsetting all the other children during Dumbo and Bambi was even worse! I remember my older brother running upstairs to my bedroom - because my dad had his own projector - to tell me it was wonderful and that I had missed a great film. But I couldn't bear to watch, it was far too emotional.

Jake Gyllenhaal Talks ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’

You and Gemma Arterton have great chemistry on screen in Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time. That must have helped in the scenes where your characters banter together?

Jake Gyllenhaal: Oh definitely! Those scenes I think were the best written and the most fun to play. They came so naturally and we shot them so fast. It was unfortunate that the ended so quickly. We might spend a month on an action scene and half a day on that scene (with Gemma Arterton). We would nail it and move on. She and I had a sort of tit for tat thing. The first time we met she looked at me as though she was unimpressed and I looked at her like...'You should be! Why aren't you?'...(joked). So that was it from the beginning, there was no acting required.
