Morocco Shoot For Prince of Persia

Director Mike Newell (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire”) will lens action adventure pic “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time” in Morocco for producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney Pictures says Variety.

Based on the best-selling video game series, the live-action feature is scheduled to film in the North African country in mid-June – actor’s strike notwithstanding.

The rest of the film’s shoot will take place at London’s Pinewood and Shepperton studios.

Jeffrey Nachmanoff (“The Day After Tomorrow”) and vidgame creator Jordan Mechner penned the script for the film scheduled for release July 10th 2009.
