Stalked: Prince of Persia casting, Dune confirmed, McAvoy and Gibson

A quick turn around the Interflab on some of the latest news stories that don't warrant their own write up.

Prince of Persia cast as Prince of Persia?...

Berg confirmed for Dune…again...

McAvoy in Gibson's Drowner?

Prince of Persia cast as Prince of Persia?...
DavidZandi.jpgAccording to IESB through Cinema Blend the casting for the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time film has taken an interesting turn. The studio have been polling audience members to find out who their ideal choice for the role would be, and most people seem to be voting for an unknown, and an actual Persian Prince at that.

David Zandi is a member of the Iranian royal family and is also a Hollywood producer, has been picked out as being the favourite for the role. It also helps that he looks like the character a hell of a lot, but the Persian Prince connection is almost too good to pass up.

Berg confirmed for Dune…again...
PeterBerg.jpgPeter Berg is being confirmed as directing a new film version of Frank Herbert's Dune novel (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) , which we already had confirmed from Berg himself. According to Variety this will be a faithful adaptation of the original novel and not of the previous film or mini-series. What a cracking choice for directing the film, I'm definitely looking forward to this one and I think it's going to be much better than the David Lynch version.

McAvoy in Gibson's Drowner?
According to The West Australian through Moviehole, James McAvoy is being looked at for the lead in Mel Gibson's next film The Drowner, an adaptation of a novel by Robert Drewe. It's unclear if Gibson will direct as yet, but he's certainly set to produce. The producers are also looking at Emily Blunt, Cate Blanchett and Barry Humphries.
