The Prince Of Persia Movie Could Have Been Like This

The Prince of Persia movie, which was great by virtue of not sucking, could have been a little better had the production team stuck to the original script handed in by the game's original creator, Jordan Mechner.


Mechner has posted what he calls his "final draft" of the screenplay, which he pitched to Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer all the way back in 2004. When it was picked up, Hollywood writers took over and made what they believed were necessary changes, but since Mechner created Prince of Persia, it's something else reading his version of how things go down.
