Christopher Nolan to dish out bubble trouble

That's right, the long gestating adaptation of the downright odd series The Prisoner is being handed to the man behind the Batman, Christopher Nolan. Notable scribes Janet and David Webb Peoples, penners of such cinematic masterworks as 12 Monkeys, Unforgiven and Blade Runner will aid Nolan. I'm sure they'll turn out a suitably batshit crazy film, pun totally intended.

This will no doubt be great news for cautious fans of the original series in which Patrick McGoohan portrayed #6, the titular prisoner entrapped in "The Village" which, although heavily guarded and protected by a killer bubble known only as Rover, was not the crappy village concocted by one M. Night Shyamalan, a far worse fate.
