    In the works actually, but Cameron is tight-lipped about it. A script was leaked a while back, but who knows how much its changed since then?

    Is it wrong when I read " the original cast the players as the titular Prince" I imagined Meat Loaf in Fight Club? Anyway...

    I think there's enough back story and character depth to translate well to both a graphic novel and a film, if they can agree on what the character is like (the difference between personalities in Sands of Time and Warrior Within was startling, as was the Prince's sudden appreciation for Godsmack), it'd make a cool story. And hopefully they'll get Monica Bellucci back as the Empress of Time and all her really-far-too-indecent clothing that came with it.

    The difference between the two characters in the game is intentional. He is supposed to be young and naive, pompous and so on in SOT. Then he is hunted by the Dhaka for years and is involved in years of wars (covered in the DS Battles of Prince of Persia game) which makes him bitter, twisted and emo - thus becoming the Warrior Within. By the end of the game though he has battled through it and is able to approach life with a better outlook - the more normal, but boring prince from The Two Thrones. Unfortunately, he still has a dark side that rears its heads as The Dark Prince until he finally overcomes it.
