Christopher Nolan Discusses "The Prisoner," "Following," and "Dark Knight" Rumors

by | October 4, 2006 | Comments

Christopher Nolan recently held a Q&A session following a screening of his movie "Following," and while he gave only a few vague responses in regards to "The Dark Knight" (confirms that Harvey Dent will be in it), he did offer a little bit of excitement regarding his version of "The Prisoner."

From IGN FilmForce: ""The Prisoner" is something I’ve been interested in for quite a long time, and I think I’ve figured out the take on how we’d approach it," Nolan explained. "The relevance of it today. David and Janet Peoples are terrific, who you know wrote "Blade Runner" and "Twelve Monkeys"… all kinds of great movies. They’re working on the script right now. I wouldn’t want to speak for them. I’m very excited to see what they’ve come up with."

Regarding "The Dark Knight": "I haven’t finished the script yet. I’m supposed to be doing it right now," Nolan admitted, sparking laughter from the crowd. "It does, absolutely. It’s a pretty direct continuation of where the last film left off, and the last scene of Batman Begins suggests a strong direction we wanted to take the story in. It absolutely carries on with a lot of the thematic concerns and hopefully takes it someplace new."
