Disney has pushed back the release of its movie adapation of the popular video game, The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time from June 19, 2009 to Memorial Weekend 2010 according to Variety.
According to Disney, they need plenty of time for post-production for this special effects-ladden blockbuster. However, getting out of the way of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen's opening of June 26, 2009 doesn't hurt either. However, it's new opening weekend puts it head to head with Shrek Goes Fourth. Disney just can't catch a break.
Prince of Persia is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, directed by Mike Newell, and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, and Alfred Molina.
Shooting is currently underway in Morocco and will next be in London.
