Why do we have sudden faith in the upcoming Prince of Persia movie? Acclaimed director Mike Newell taking the helm isn't hurting one bit (that's confirmed now, by the way). But we're even more excited now that we're hearing the stuff Newell has to say about the project:
It's not a videogame movie. It's a great story. If you had read the script, you would know that it wasn't a videogame. It's very exciting and it's immensely romantic and it's like Lost Horizon. It takes you to somewhere you've never been.
Shut up. Just shut. Up. You had us at, "It's not a videogame movie".
