The computer game movie tends not to fair very well at the box office, and there have been a few attempts in recent years.
But undeterred by the failings of other movies, how bad was Hitman?, the team that were behind Pirates of the Caribbean are bringing Prince of Persia to the big screen.
And no there are no second rate actors in this one as Jake Gyllenhall, Ben Kingsley and Gemma Arterton are all on the cast list for what should, hopefully, be one of the biggest movies of next summer.
Set in 9th century medieval Persia, a young adventurous prince uncovers a dangerous artifact in a remote mountain kingdom and with the help of an enemy princess, must stop a despot from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy all mankind.
