Though Christopher Nolan is currently concentrating on the release of The Prestige and the pre-production of The Dark Knight, the director has taken the time to pick up another project.

Christopher Nolan to Adapt The Prisoner

According to Variety, Universal Pictures is about to close on a deal that will have Christopher Nolan direct a feature adaptation of the TV series The Prisoner.

Janet and David Peoples are set to write the script. Scott Stuber, Mary Parent, Barry Mendel and Emma Thomas will produce.

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.

Nolan will deliver a contemporized version of the story once he completes The Dark Knight; which doesn't enter into production until early next year.

The group behind The Prisoner is known for their paranoid past. Nolan directed both Memento and Insomnia while David Peoples wrote Twelve Monkeys and Blade Runner.

The Prisoner has become a top priority at Universal.

Stay tuned for updates.
