If you were at all worried about who Disney might nab to direct the Ubisoft video game adaptation, you can rest easy. Michael Bay is on the job!

Robert Sanchez over at IESB.net shared the scoop, naming Bay as director on the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced project and confirming a projected summer 2009 release date. IESB also points out that the Bay-Bruckheimer alliance has produced past blockbusters like "The Rock," "Armageddon," and both "Bad Boys," meaning this "Prince" will surely be as big as they come.

The film is adapted from the "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time" video game, and will follow the titular hero, "an adventurous prince who teams up with a rival princess to stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world" (per IMDB).

According to the report, studio heads hope that Bay will head to work on "Persia" as soon as he’s done with a little summer project about warring robots.

Script comes courtesy of video game creator Jordan Mechner, who also wrote the three installments of the game series; Jeffrey Nachmanoff ("The Day After Tomorrow") also worked on revisions.
