John August Doubts Prince Of Persia's Summer 2009 Release Date

Screenwriter/Executive Producer/All-Around-Geek John August was shocked to read that the Prince of Persia movie would be hitting theaters on July 10, 2009.

"It's a perfectly good date, but I have no idea if there will be a movie to show," wrote August on his blog. "I don't know if it's getting made, or who's directing, or who's starring. No one knows, not even the people signing the checks. It's still a project in development."

"My guess is that this got written on a whiteboard at some strategic planning meeting, in answer to the question, 'Hey, if we made that Prince of Persia movie, when would we release it?'"

So don't mark that date on your calendar with pen just yet.
