Christopher Nolan set to direct Prisoner movie

Posted by Michael Pinto on Aug 12, 2006 in Television |

It seems like a Prisoner movie is getting close to reality. Christopher Nolan is slated to direct – I hope he does a better job than the Batman series – but then again I wonder if anyone could do a good job of making such a classic series into a movie:

Movie in the making?

“Following hot on the heels of rumours of a proposed TV re-make of “The Prisoner”, news has reached TUW that a possible movie adaptation is rumoured to be in the works. According to “Variety”, Christopher Nolan (“Memento”, “Batman Begins”, “Insomnia”, pictured left) is ‘near a deal’ with Universal to direct a Prisoner movie, written by David and Janet Webb Peoples. What this means for the mooted Sky TV re-make is not clear. Universal have held movie rights to the series for some years, would they exert pressure on Granada/SKY not to move forward?. As always, we will be first to bring you more details if and when they appear.”
