Christopher Nolan to Track "The Prisoner" After "Dark Knight" Duty
From Variety: "Universal Pictures is near a deal for Christopher Nolan to direct a feature version of TV series classic "The Prisoner."
Series lasted only 17 episodes in 1967. Patrick McGoohan played a government agent who resigns, is kidnapped and placed on an isolated island known as the Village. He's given a new identity -- Number Six -- and interacts with an island staff trying to get him to reveal why he resigned."
Sounds like a pretty cool take on the old cult series, mainly because Nolan is involved, but also because the screenplay adaptation comes from David & Janet Peoples, the husband & wife writing team who last collaborated to bring us "12 Monkeys" -- and that movie's just awesome.
