Who is Kingsley in Prince of Persia ?

ON

Earlier this week, it was announced that Ben Kingsley had joined the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time cast, but it wasn’t revealed who he was playing.

In the fantasy action film, based on the Ubisoft video game, Kingsley is the villain Nizam, who plots to kill his brother King Shahrman and blame it on Prince Dastan so he can take the throne.

Jake Gyllenhaal plays the prince, while Gemma Arterton and Alfred Molina round out the leads.

Mike Newell directs and Jerry Bruckheimer produces the Disney movie, scheduled for a June 19, 2009 release. Filming will begin in July in Morocco and England.
