Donnie Darko reckons that the upcoming Prince of Persia film is unlike any other videogame-to-film adaptation, and has assured fans that none of the ostriches in director Mike Newell's production are computer-generated.
"It's an experience I'll never be able to do again," he added. "Well, I mean hopefully ostriches will come back again either in re-shoots or in the second one."
"It wasn't like your normal video game adaptation," he explained. "It was this massive epic that they had in the works, this real classic story that was emotional and real and filled with just ridiculous turns and twists. And that's what makes it intriguing to me."
The Prince of Persia film is due out in May 2010 and tells the story of the Prince's attempts to contain The Sands of Time, which allow the holder to manipulate time to his own ends. It stars Gemma Arterton as Princess Tamima and the Prince is played by Jake Gyllenhaal. Nope, no idea.
