Icelandic Actor Shooting Bruckheimer Movie in Morocco

Icelandic actor Gísli Örn Gardarsson is currently in Morocco to play one of the main parts in the new Jerry Bruckheimer movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Shooting began yesterday.

The movie is being shot in the city of Oukaimeden, at an altitude of almost 3,000 meters in the Atlas Mountains, Fréttabladid reports.

“It is much more exotic than I expected. I thought the city would be more Western,” Gardarsson said. “It is like from 1001 Nights; snakes, monkeys and desert storms.”

Gardarsson will be involved in filming until November and the final shots are scheduled for December 12. Other actors who play key roles in the movie include Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina.
