Christopher Nolan Approaches "The Prisoner"



Christopher Nolan is in talks to helm "The Prisoner" for Universal Pictures.

Christopher Nolan is about to add one more directorial stint in his resume. According to Variety, the acclaimed filmmaker is close to a deal to helm Universal's "The Prisoner", a big screen adaptation of TV series of the same name aired in the '60s.

If everything goes well, Nolan then will be tapped to make a contemporized version for the picture with Janet and David Peoples being set to pen the script. Production is expected to begin soon after he wraps up "Batman Begins" sequel, "The Dark Knight" which is slated to begin filming early next year.

As for the story, the movie will likely stay true to the original which took its focus on a resigned government agent who is kidnapped then placed on an isolated island.
