Disney denies casting real Persian prince in Prince of PersiaMarch 26th, 2008 - 12:06 pm ICT by admin
New York, Mar 26 (ANI): Disney execs have shot down the reports that they are considering casting a Persian prince in their next venture titled Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.
Prince David K. Zandi is believed to be circulating an official-looking Worldwide Audience Poll that shows him the favourite of 17 million movie fans.
Zandi had told a reporter “Most people are fascinated that a real Persian with royal lineage could be hired to play this role.
However, Disneys rep denies the reports.
“There is absolutely no truth [to the rumour that Zandi is being considered]. The speculation is self-created,” New York Post quoted a rep as saying.
The film to be produced by Oscar winning producer Jerry Bruckheimer is the movie version of the video game. (ANI)
