Duel Report

Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman will play dueling magicians in an adaptation of Christopher Priest's novel The Prestige, reports Digital Spy. Christopher Nolan (Memento, Batman Begins) will direct. Nolan's brother Jonathan adapted the screenplay for The Prestige, which we're thrilled to discover is set in Victorian England. The book's description on Amazon is quite enticing, so we may have to read this one before the movie version comes out. If you've read it, less us know what you think. --Kim

    This book totally rocks. In fact, when I first heard of Jonathan Strange & Dr. Morrell, before I really discovered what it was actually about, I was pretty sure that it was just going to be a longwinded Prestige knockoff...

  2. Great! It's going on my list...--K
